George W Hart
George Hart will present and discuss examples of his mathematically-informed sculptures, which generally apply computer technology in their design and/or fabrication. These include works made of metal, wood, plastic, or found objects, and often use laser-cutting, plasma-cutting or additive freeform fabrication technologies in their realization. Also shown will be brief videos of the assembly of some larger commissions. Mathematical and computer science aspects of these designs will be discussed. Hart is now Chief Content Officer in the formation of The Museum of Mathematics, which will open in New York City within two years. Some of the planned Museum activities will also be presented.
