January 28, 2016 7:32 pm | by

There’s a new genius on the scene, and we’re excited to introduce SierpinskiThis geometric pattern is fresh, fun and far from obtuse! Multi-color triangles in blues, greens, and reds act in congruence to help this print take shape! 

Inspired by Wacław Sierpinski, this limited-edition print is available now in bumGenius and Flip Diapers — and you have a chance to add one to your stash! All you have to do is think outside the box and comment with a fun fact about any of the geniuses featured in our Genius Series prints. One person will win a bumGenius Freetime in Sierpinski.

Wacław Sierpinski was a Polish mathematician, known for his work on set theory, number theory and the theory of functions and topology. He delivered the first-ever lecture course on theory, and has published more than 700 papers and 50 books on this subject. Sierpinski has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions to mathematics. He has three well-known fractals in his honor, including the Sierpinski triangle. This figure forms a geometric pattern, as the midpoints of each side of the triangle are connected, creating four additional triangles in which the sides are connected, allowing infinitely many possible iterations if repeated.

    OK. I must admit that I had no idea that there were stories behind the genius series, but now that I do…I love them even more!

    I love the Sierpinski because I love Math! It was my favourite subject in school. plus it looks abstract which is one of my favourite forms of artwork. I can’t believe that Sierpinski authored 724 papers and 50 books!!

    I love encouraging genius in our babies with the genius series! I think Albert was what sealed the deal for my engineer husband to use cloth 🙂

    I LOVE the Sierpinkski triangle. We did a math project on it when I was in school!

    Albert Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. Einstein’s work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science.

    Martin & Osa Johnson were the first pilots to fly over Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Kenya in Africa and film them from the air. Their life sounds so adventurous!

    Charlie Chaplin was NEVER a US citizen, and his body was stolen after he died. It took about 3 months to recover his body and he is now buried under concrete.

    During the Polish–Soviet War, Sierpiński helped break Soviet Russian ciphers for the Polish General Staff’s cryptological agency.

    Love finding support for the applications of mathematics in “real life”. Thanks for the great mathematician print! Love it!

    The pathologist who made Einstein body’s autopsy stole his brain and kept it in a jar for 20 years.

    The Sierpinski triangle is a fractal and attractive fixed set with the overall shape of an equilateral triangle, subdivided recursively into smaller equilateral triangles! Loved learning about him in my masters geometry class 🙂

    I grew up as a pastor’s daughter and our church in Queens was just a few blocks away from Louis Armstrong’s childhood home. It was a historical site and tourist attraction in the middle of a typical Queens neighborhood and I always thought that was funny.

    Fractals are found in many places in nature – from snowflakes to certain leaves, from ferns to forked lightning, even, most unexpectedly, in broccoli.

    I love the Sierpinski print. It’s gender neutral and will work great if I have a boy in the future. It might even be the first diaper he wears. Love it!
