Margot KRASOJEVIC: ABSTRACTION /// Abstraction is the action of divorcing properties of physical objects and ideas from the objects and concepts themselves. Mathematics, once regarded and revered as the absolute in truth, saw an epiphany with the discovery of abstraction and non-Euclidean geometry. Abstraction has been a major theme in the development of mathematics, as those interested in the field have come up with ideas further and further divorced from their basis in the real world, and then sought ways to bring them back to inform us about the real world, which we might otherwise not have known.
