Creating Problems LARC Exhibition
Start Date: 9/7/2017 All Day
End Date: 9/12/2017

Event Description
Please mark your calendar for the Creating Problems LARC Exhibition on September 7th - 12th in the Student Art Gallery (Art 211).

On September 7th, the Creating Problems LARC Group will host a Math Colloquium in Art room 212 from 4:10-5:10pm, and host a reception for their art exhibition in Art 211 from 5:10-6:10pm.

Creating Problems was an experiment-driven, studio-based Math/Art experience (with faculty Cayla Skillin-Brauchle and Josh Liaison). The LARC students and faculty first worked together on a series of exploratory mathematical problems and artistic prompts to create common ground, enable critical conversation and fuel collaboration. Their early meetings included lively conversations about formal mathematical definitions versus artistic interpretations (e.g. symmetry), the visualization of systems and patterns, and the spectrum from abstraction (e.g. theoretical) to realism (e.g. analytical). Students and faculty then pursued individual and collaborative projects based in a full spectrum of artistic and mathematical thinking.

Participants discovered that that artists and mathematicians use similar language and creative problem-solving processes, yet the different ways that they employ that language and those processes yield vastly different outcomes.

Come and see and hear about the student and faculty projects that resulted from that discovery.
