"I try to create pieces that show the mathematics, so that people realize how mathematics is not just boring old computations, but something beautiful to look at.”
Dr. Eva Knoll has been a practicing mathematical artist as long as she can remember. Because of this, she studied architecture, which led her to pursue graduate studies to investigate the geometry in the work of a Swiss Concrete artist. She now teaches how to teach mathematics, at the Mount. In "Mathematical Art" from PechaKucha Night Halifax Vol. 21, she explained how her pieces answer mathematical questions and shape our vision of it as a pure "dry" science.
