Take control of the camera by clicking and dragging around in this immersive video made by Mathemalchemist Henry Segerman.
In August 2020, Mathemalchemy’s Artistic Director Dominique Ehrmann completed a one-quarter-size maquette, of which you can view a smoothly rotating version here. A few snapshots of this maquette will guide you, below, to see glimpses of the finished full-scale installation. Click to explore Mathemalchemy (pictures, mathematical concepts and more).
Mathemalchemy's one-quarter-size maquette
'Tess the Tortoise was first supposed to carry a balloon, but we weren't sure how to create it. That's when Edward Vogel (who, as it turns out, is an avid kitemaker!) suggested that instead of carrying a balloon, Tess could be flying a kite. The group instantly knew that this was the ideal choice for our curious and playful tortoise. Tess' kite will be a Level 2 Sierpiński tetrahedron, which plays into the infinity motif of Tess's story.'
