A curious collaboration
Mathemalchemy is an exciting collaborative enterprise, driven by the energy and enthusiasm of twenty-three mathematical artists and artistic mathematicians who are working to create a large multimedia art installation that celebrates the creativity and beauty of mathematics.

I think about knots a lot these days, and I think about how complicated those knots are. My work involves knots, and knots within knots. The fanciful sea creatures I’m crocheting are a variant of knots called theta curves. Knots with a mathematical twist While knots, in the mathematical sense, are tangled loops, theta curvesContinue reading “Knots, trivial and otherwise”

A 360° experience of the one-quarter-size maquette
Here you can explore the one-quarter-size maquette realized by Mathemalchemy’s Artistic Director Dominique Ehrmann. This miniature gives a holistic view of the final installation – but bear in mind that it is merely a maquette. For instance, the polyhedral dice are stand-ins for intricate 3D-printed polyhedral rocks in the full-scale installation. Many other details will also be more striking in the final installation, which we expect to unveil by the summer of 2021.
