(1/3) For those of you wondering what I have been talking about when mentioning using and in my art, here is a bit of stuff that I wrote about how the idea developed.

(2/3) In these pages, I look at what happens if I change the sequence of numbers that I use to construct the squiggle from the simple 1,2,3,…,n. I also take a look at why for ‘linear’ squiggles, the centers of rotation of the parts of the squiggle lie on one of two lines.

(3/3) A bit more on this construction (I even tried it by hand with ruler and compass 😁), specifically for a case where the angle is not a divisor of 360°. I end up with two different "complementary" "linear" squiggles, but they still satisfy that weird angle relationship.

Have you encountered these squiggles anywhere else? They appear to have a bit in common with meandering rivers , but I don’t know if the squiggles that I play with have been investigated elsewhere.
