Sensual Mathematics Exhibition

An exhibition of the Aalto University course: Crystal Flowers in Halls of Mirrors: Mathematics meets Art and Architecture

The final exhibition of the transdisciplinary course at Aalto University is a concrete opening to enhance the interaction between scientific and artistic practices. It aims to break clichés related to mathematics by bringing deep phenomena of the field to the level of human experience.

Open-minded collaboration across the conventional barriers between disciplines enables the pursuit of diverse goals and aims. The exhibition also presents inspiring examples and ideas of new directions for education, from early childhood to research level. Students on the course come from different Schools of Aalto from freshmen to PhD students.

“Sensual Mathematics” is an expression of an intimate, inseparable relation between the sensual and the rational approaches of each team of students towards low dimensional geometry and topology.

The vertical artworks of the exhibition create a natural space inviting the visitor to wander into its forest-like growth
