The Simons Center Art Gallery presents the Illustrating Geometry Art Exhibition, on display from June 19 through August 1, which features the artwork of professors Saul Schleimer and Henry Segerman.
An opening reception will be held on June 19 beginning at 5 pm with a viewing and wine and cheese reception in the Simons Center Art Gallery and Lobby, followed by two artists talks in the Earth and Space Science Building, Room 001. At 6 pm Segerman will discuss “Sculpture in Four-dimensions,” and at 6:45 pm Schleimer will present “Minimal Surfaces and Seifert Surfaces.”
Saul Schleimer is an associate professor at the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick in the UK. His interests include geometric topology, combinatorial group theory and computation. He is especially interested in the exposition, both written and graphical, of ideas from these fields.
Henry Segerman is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University. His mathematical research is in three-dimensional geometry and topology; concepts from those areas often appear in his artistic work. His other interests include procedural generation, self reference, ambigrams and puzzles.
