Virtual Fractality
Thursday, November 9 – Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Guarracino Family Gallery – Douglas D. Schumann Library
Fractals are geometric objects whose dimension is not a whole number. This sculptural installation, a hybrid virtual-physical representation of the three dimensional fractal known as Apollonian Spheres was constructed by students and faculty (Professors Rachel Maitra, Simon Williamson, and Nate Derbinsky) with artist collaborator Sharon Ma. We invite you to an opening reception and artist talk on Thursday, November 9, from 2:30-4 pm in the Library Program Room. The exhibit can be viewed in the Guarracino Family Gallery, located at the entrance of the Schumann Library. For more information, please contact: libraryexhibits@wit.edu

Virtual Fractality is made possible with funding from Wentworth Institute of Technology EPIC Minigrant. The artist talk is co-sponsored by the Department of Applied Mathematics and the Department of Humanities & Social Sciences.

 

 

Monuments to My Memory
Thursday, November 9 – Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Guarracino Family Gallery – Douglas D. Schumann Library
Exploring balance and fluctuation as life moves through time and space, and how we try to capture those experiences, it is more important now more than ever to preserve our past and our future by observing fragile landscapes we visit. The screenprinted patterns of life, by way of geometric shapes, serve as floating webs, networks, or imagined constellations over photographs of nature environments. These images become documents of the in-between and asks what is left behind when you visit a place where others once were? We invite you to an opening reception and artist talk on Thursday, November 9, from 2:30-4 pm in the Library Program Room. This exhibit accompanies Virtual Fractality and can be viewed in the Guarracino Family Gallery, located at the entrance of the Schumann Library.
