The Evolution of Christmas Tree Decoration and a Happy New Year!
The IMAGINARY team wishes you merry christmas and a happy new year!
We prepared a christmas card for you (in English, Spanish, German, French and Catalan for now) to download and forward. It was made with our program SURFER, which visualizes algebraic surfaces in real time. If you help us translate the card into other languages we can prepare new versions (for example Portuguese or Russian). We also offer you the InDesign file to recreate your own Christmas card - see attached files and below for the download directory.
2013 was a very special year for us: we collaborated with Mathematics of Planet Earth to launch a new exhibition and presented our new platform “IMAGINARY - open mathematics”. We worked on many exhibitions and events in Germany, Russia, Norway, France, Denmark, Argentina, Spain, Uruguay and Vietnam… And we presented our “IMAGINARY-Entdeckerbox”, a very exciting new medium for us to reach out to schools. The biggest news in 2013 was that we continue our great collaboration with the Klaus Tschira Stiftung. We are now working on a 3 years program to communicate modern mathematics and current research. We are looking forward for the upcoming “snapshots of modern mathematics” project and new exhibitions which are already in the pipeline for 2014.
Thank you for your support!
With all the best,
Your IMAGINARY team
