The mathematician in me is fascinated with the various roles that constraints play in optimization problems: sometimes they make problems much harder to solve; other times, much easier. And the artist in me is fascinated with the roles that constraints play in art. All artists must deal with constraints, and many artists choose to impose constraints upon themselves.  The benefit of this was well expressed by Joseph Heller (paraphrasing T.S. Eliot): 'If one is forced to write within a certain framework, the imagination is taxed to its utmost and will produce its richest ideas.'

I have used mathematical optimization techniques to create domino mosaics, TSP art, map-colored mosaics, etc. Recently, I have been constructing Game-of-Life mosaics and animations to showcase them. --Robert (Bob) Bosch
