Scott on “Symmetry, Art and Illusion” at the Museum of Math

As part of the Museum of Mathematics talk series “Math Encounters”, Scott Kim of Shufflebrain gave a presentation called Symmetry, Art & Illusion on Thursday, April 7, 2011. Summary: Join artist and author Scott Kim on a dazzling journey of exploration into the world of symmetry and art. Discover the surprising mathematical patterns behind the art, and see how the same patterns reappear in art, music, dance, and animation. Audience members are also invited to participate in a hands-on workshop with Scott, where they will learn to draw their own symmetrical ambigram lettering designs (as featured in the book Inversions), play with symmetrical rhythmic patterns, and join in a full-body investigation of symmetry.
