I have a love of the works of Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) - 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Through the Looking Glass' and his poem, 'The Hunting of the Snark', particularly. I love Dodgson's mind: his imagination and his facility with logic, numbers and word play.
I very much enjoyed learning more of Dodgson's life and influences, as well as about the mathematical references in his work, in reading 'Lewis Carroll in Numberland: His Fantastical Mathematical Logical Life' by Robin Wilson, recently. My reading of this book coincided with my daughter Scarlett receiving some 'rebus' puzzles for homework. At that time too, as 'parent homework', we were asked to write a creative letter of introduction about our child. Inspired by both my readings and Scarlett's homework tasks, I came up with a rebus letter to introduce Scarlett (in watercolour and acrylic ink).
This is the work entitled, 'A nod to Mr Dodgson' in my portfolio. Can you decipher it? Dodgson's work has inspired more project ideas for me, recently ... watch this space!
