Math & Design Interest Meeting

Pop Up Math & Design Exhibition Interest Meeting
Thursday, February 23 at 2 PM
Main Art Building Room S360

The Pop Up Math & Design Exhibition at UGA brings together art and math students to collaboratively design objects, visualizations, and interactive experiences of mathematics with a focus on topology. In topology, objects can stretch, twist, bend, and deform freely; to a topologist, a twisted rubber band and a circle are the same. With no fixed “shape” to speak of, mathematicians and artists can make creative choices of how to best represent these intriguing objects. Join us and explore an amazing world of knots, higher dimensions, and wild spaces. All undergraduates with a background in math, the arts, or design are welcome to join.

How do artists and scientists work together?

Rebecca Kamen, sculptor and lecturer on the intersections of art and science, seeks ‘the truth’ through observation. Her artwork is informed by wide-ranging research into cosmology, history, philosophy, and by connecting common threads that flow across various scientific fields to capture and re-imagine what the scientists see.

Reading Room: Remember the Future

Remember the Future, a podcast by ART.COOP
https://rememberthefuture.buzzsprout.com

Art.coop invites listeners to Remember the Future together by listening to the stories of artists and culture bearers who know that the practices of the Solidarity Economy are not some new technology, but actually are ways of being in relationship with people and planet that are as old as time. They are our ancestral practices. In this 7 episode narrative pilot, listeners learn: You don’t have to be a starving artist or a sell out. You can find work where you joyfully live your values and pay the bills. We meet QTBIPOC creatives who are firing their bosses, freeing the land, electing themselves, and building livelihoods based on care, cooperation, mutual aid, and solidarity. Every other episode grounds listeners in a practice-based offering to activate the solidarity economy in their body, in their community, and in their context today.
