Slippage: Math and Science in Literature

Today, via CRWOPPS, I learned of a new literary journal for "the confluence of science and art". It's called Slippage Literary Magazine, and its first online edition features poems by Bill Knott and Dave Bonta, as well as lots of visual work.

While many journals publish science- and/or mathematically-inspired art, this is the first one that I've that is devoted to the genre, although there are a number of anthologies (including Kurt Brown's Verse and Universe) and single-author collections available.

If you're interested, here's a blog about "mathematical poetry" by Kaz Maslanka. These tend towards the highly visual/representational, which is one end of the spectrum.

Or see my earlier posts about mathematics and poetry: Calling All Bards of the Binary Code, or What's Neat on the Net: Visual Edition.
