Design Backstory

The world seems well endowed with morons, bureaucrats and idiocrats. However combining elements of the STEAM fields of Art and Mathematics we have a smart Moron, Zbigniew Moron and the renowned Dutch artist Piet Mondrian.

"The emotion of beauty is always obscured by the appearance of the object. Therefore, the object must be eliminated from the picture." Piet Mondrian

The design was inspired while reading Adam Spencer’s “World of Numbers” and adapts Mondrian’s style to apply it to a Moron’s 33 x 32 unit (non-square) rectangle with the sum of the component squares of 1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15 and 18 being equal to the area of a rectangle measuring 33 by 32 units to equal 1056 square units (Try it!).

Sometimes biology, chemistry and physics converge to produce beauty out of morons stimulating, perhaps, a boogie-woogie down Broadway.

 We made a big mistake 300 years ago when we separated technology and humanism. ... It's time to put the two back together.
