2016 Canadian $20 Geometry in Art 5-Coin 1 oz Fine Silver Coloured Deluxe Subscription Set

 

Peoples' view of the world changed forever when modern art began representing objects with simple lines, shapes, patterns and dimension. Science and art were merged forever, because, at its heart, modern art is all about geometry.

This approach fuelled modern technology by providing a mathematical basis for computer-generated imagery (CGI). Polygons could be used to create incredibly lifelike objects, but when Canada's gaming industry tried to adopt the same technique, a problem emerged: realism requires far too many polygons to support the data-intensive, real-time processing that's needed during a video game.

The solution: low poly, a new visual style that delivered smooth gameplay by using fewer polygons. Today, low poly would be considered unsophisticated and crude, but in the 1990s, it was revolutionary and propelled Canada's gaming industry forward.

This breakthrough series portrays some of Canada's greatest icons using geometric shapes, and honours low poly as an art form in its own right.
