With NameSurfer you can experience the relation between letters, words, formulas and forms, i. e. mathematics and art, in an interactive way. You can enter simple equations or words as for example your name. They will produce beautiful images, which are surfaces in space. Mathematically, the program visualizes real algebraic geometry in real-time. The surfaces shown are given by the zero set of a polynomial equation in 3 variables. The letters/words are transformed into algebraic equations.
