Together with the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) South Africa and the AIMS Next Einstein Initiative, IMAGINARY is planning a series of events to boost mathematics communication on the African continent in the near future. After the first very successful event in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, we will introduce two upcoming events: a congress in Rabat, Morocco, and a workshop-conference in Cape Town, South Africa.Read more
Math Creations Project in Berlin, Germany
We are calling students of the Art and Design fields as well as independent Artists and Designers to participate in the Math Creations contest for Art, Design and Mathematics. The goal of the contest is new creative ideas based on mathematical concepts and their realization. It is organized by the special research fields “Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics” and “Raum - Zeit - Materie. Analytische und Geometrische Strukturen” in collaboration with IMAGINARY.
The project consists of three events, all being staged in Berlin:
January 27, 2017, 6 pm at Technische Universität Berlin (MA004)
Inspiration for contest ideas during an evening of discussion with speakers of the two special research fields
March 24, 2017, 6 pm at spektrum art&science communityParticipating teams present their ideas. The jury chooses the most promising math art projects to receive a grant.
May 5, 2017, 6 pm at spektrum art&science communityThe results of the productive phase are presented and exhibited.
A professional film crew, directed by film-maker Ekaterina Eremenko (Colors of Math 2012, Discrete Charme of Geometry 2015) will record the events as well as the realization process of the winning projects. A feature film will be produced to be screened internationally, starring all winners and their Math Creations.
