Mathematics and Arts Colloquium: Meeting Salvador Dali in the Fourth Dimension - public talk by Thomas Banchoff
Helena Sederholm opens the event Meeting Salvador Dali in the Fourth Dimension.
How did Salvador Dali choose an unfolded four-dimensional cross as the central figure in one of his most famous religious paintings? This talk will describe a ten-year series of meetings with the artist starting in 1975 and a survey of forty years of developments in computer graphics approaches to phenomena in four and higher dimensions.
Niilo Helander Foundation sponsors the event.
