    I read something like that on artcrimes, or linked to artcrimes site that
    says how pieces letters are spaced evenly in order to look good, how the shadowing and 3-d effects are all geometrically even and stuff like that.

    Also, do some research into "coloring-by-number." I've heard of a few mathematical theories that deal with number representations of color and how they relate to the overall asthetics of the piece.

    Or I might be talking out of my ass.

    It is our attempt at recreating aspects of the Sacred Geometry.Archetypes that represent where we and the universe come from.Our direct connection to the god force.

    Certain intersections of lines have a universally known and recognized impact and meaning.

    Geomatria. Pictographs.Ancient Symbolism...

    all relate to modern day piecing..in one form or another.

    yeah, just like how renaissance painters used geometry to space the figures and put emphasis on certain places to engage the eye of the viewer. if you ever read the book, Ways Of Seeing, I believe it touches on those issues. i'm sure it translates well to lettering and is probably good to know, but i don't like the idea of relieing on formulas to make a nice piece. 36 chambers, yo.

    Eskae

    Eskae is (in my opinion) the king of geometric symbolism is graffiti. His link in Art Crimes is under Ezra Li - he just had a fine art show in Oakland where he made a dodecahedron out of string! This guy is using more brain power than my whole posse combined. I think there is even an essay in HiFi about math in graf that mentions him as an innovator. Darkat represent.
