Join artist and author Scott Kim on a dazzling journey of exploration into the world of symmetry and art. Discover the surprising mathematical patterns behind the art, and see how the same patterns reappear in art, music, dance, and animation. Audience members are also invited to participate in a hands-on workshop with Scott, where they will learn to draw their own symmetrical ambigram lettering designs (as featured in the book Inversions), play with symmetrical rhythmic patterns, and join in a full-body investigation of symmetry.
Presented by Scott Kim, with a special introduction by Vi Hart, creator of the viral YouTube video series, “Doodling in Math Class.”
MoMath was proud to present Scott Kim as the speaker for our April, 2011 Math Encounters event. Math Encounters is a new public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics and presented by the Simons Foundation and the Museum of Mathematics.
