Maths and art part 1: Hexponentials, Maskit slices and cascades

Whoever thought their maths teacher was delusional for handing out poems about logarithms after math class is bound to be stunned by this post. 
Yes, maths can be art. 
As I browsed through the wild wild web today I came across the website of the Harvard maths department. 'Freaks are us', they have a whole section on "graphs and such" that could easily be considered as artistic oeuvres.

The question I ask myself now is whether I have reached artistic perversion or if maths can really be aesthetically pleasing. 

I think they can.
