I was able to attend the Illustrating Mathematics workshop at ICERM last year and thought it was fantastic!

I was able to attend the Illustrating Mathematics workshop at ICERM last year and thought it was fantastic! Now there is an opportunity for an entire semester of fun.

Some of Henry Segerman's and my 3D prints were recently used in a student art exhibit at Aalto University, Finland after Henry gave a talk there.

The piece, titled Shadow Lanterns, uses a sequence of {4,3,r} honeycombs for r = 3 to r = 7. The last two are truncations. The artists printed half-models and put a light source at the center, projecting shadows onto cylinders.

There are a number of cool looking projects in this video of the exhibit, and Shadow Lanterns makes its appearance around the 2-minute mark.
