FolidIt - http://fold.it/portal/ - is a protein folding "game" that does actual science at the same time.  It may be one way to discover the design science of cancer cells.

http://www.sagemath.org/
Sage Maths is free open source software for doing virtually every type of maths you can imagine. Not just numerical maths, but symbolic maths too - you can give Sage an equation and it will tell you what the equation of its integral or differential is, for example. And it will do numerical maths, plot graphs, analyze statistical information and solve equations or sets of equations. In fact, it will do virtually anything mathematical you can think of.

Sage was developed as an open source alternative to commercial systems like Mathematica and Matlab (it has most but not all of the functionality of both) because mathematicians and scientists need to be able to understand and review the algorithms their software uses - something not possible with a closed system. 

Originally developed for graduate mathematicians, Sage is now at the stage where it is useful and interesting to professional and hobbyist mechanical and electronic engineers, amateur astronomers, business number crunchers, and people who just want to know more maths than they do. It runs on Linux, Windows and OS X, and lately people have managed to run it on both Apple iThings and Android smartphones.

Photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson from the DVD "The Decisive Moment":
The greatest joy for me is geometry, that means a structure.  You can go shooting for shapes or patterns and all this but it's a sensuous pleasure an intellectual pleasure at the same time, to have everything in the right place.  It's a recognition of an order which is in front of you.

Eric Broug - scholar/artist of Islamic geometric art
http://www.broug.com
Years and years ago, there was a travel article in Rolling Stone magazine that included directions for creating Islamic geometric art.  I copied it out by hand and remember putting it in my copy of one of the fine (now old) Shelter books.  Never been able to find it again.  An additional layer of Islamic geometric art is sometimes the quotations from the Koran that weave through the lines. Incredibly beautiful and spiritual public demonstrations of culture and belief.
