John Sharp: A Transformation Sketchbook. In: Bridges 2002. Pages 25–36



Looking back through my notebooks and the ideas I have used for teaching, I found that I have many ideas which in some way transform a starting image using mathematical concepts. I have many hand-drawn or computer sketches which have not reached finished work. Bridges has provided an incentive to work on them again. This paper is a summary of ideas I have used.
