In Transition - Mathematics and Art

Kirsi Peltonen   [email] (Aalto University, Finland)

Abstract: This is a talk for the general public and academic audience interested in possibilities for enhancing interaction between contemporary mathematics and arts. What are the needs for this dialogue in different levels of education, research and broader in the society? Recent multidisciplinary activities challenging the traditions and communication of mathematics and arts at Aalto University in Finland have given a new type of platform to share the beauty of mathematics systematically and open accessible layers to a useful interplay. Many outcomes and byproducts of our up-to-date experiments are perfect for applications in digital technologies such as programming, CAD, 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality. Some scenarios for the future development are presented.
