Inspired by Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama's "Tales of Tono," two mathematicians (Roman Kossak and Andrés Villaveces) and two artists (Wanda Siedlecka and María Clara Cortés) embark on a photographic dialogue in search for ways to find common grounds for both mathematics and art. Andrés Villaveces, one of the mathematicians, discusses this ongoing project. (In Spanish)

3D shadows of 4D art

BY HENRY SEGERMAN
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Mathematics and Art might seem to be about as different as two disciplines can be. But they share an affinity for fictional worlds: both mathematicians and artists are permitted to ask "What if" questions, that aren't required to have anything to do with the real world. I'll try to explain a sculpture based on one of these questions: "What if space had more than three dimensions?"
