Lucy Rycroft-Smith – Mathematical Art of Artistic Mathematics?

About the Session

What does it mean to make mathematical art or practise mathematics artistically? As a mathematician and artist I consider the intersection and what kinds of important learning the disciplines can draw from one other. (I’ll also show the kind of joy and delight I find in mathematical making).
