About this session

In the eyes of the general populace, mathematics and art are usually viewed as completely disjointed topics, and many people would struggle to relate the two. However, to a mathematician, the connection is apparent and beautiful—indeed, many mathematicians consider their field to be an exceptionally rich and complex art form. Whether the focus is the Mathematics of Art, the Art of Mathematics, or something in between, many people have made noteworthy observations of the role each plays in the other.

In this unique and entertaining presentation, Dr. Paul Sisson will present a sampling of observations and examples of the intersection of mathematics and art forms including architecture, music, and three-dimensional visuals.
