From Origami to Folded-Plate Architecture
BY LANE ALLEN
@ VOL 1
ON OCT 01, 2015
Architect Lane Allen has a life-long passion for art, origami, geometry, and structure. He explores the relationships—both real and imagined—among the geometries of origami, the geometries of structure, and works of architecture, both modern and historic.
"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.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, November 17th, 2016.

She shows how she tries to balance colors, shapes, and textures, and explains the various sources of inspiration that give her works a special quality: the richness of the Turkish culture, Rumi's poetry, and the rhythms of music.
BY TONJE HALVORSEN
@ VOL 65
ON MAR 27, 2019
We have all heard stories about the suffering artist. The question Tonje Halvorsen asked herself was: who am I as an artist, and does art require pain? 1 collection. 21 garments, 500,000 safety pins, 1,500,000 beads and 7,000 hours later. What was her answer? Obsession. Tonje's artistry is characterised by an obsession, which in the past two years has been prioritised over her health, relationships and job. An obsession that has cost me some of my most valuable possession: time.
