Mathematics and Visualization Summer Program 2004

In the summer of 2004, I ran a summer program on Mathematics and Visualization which enrolled four art students and four science students for a series of joint projects in science and art. We started with the project of building our own image filters in MATLAB. Here’s an example of a filter created by Seth Dowling based on reshaping the pixel data in an image using a space-filling curve:

Most of the student projects focused on the idea of tensegrity, in which different elements in tension and compression are balanced against one another to create intricate and sturdy shapes. The summer ended with a group art show at the main gallery in the Lamar Dodd School of Art at UGA.

  • From left to right, the students and faculty were Kit Hughes, Alessa Ellefson, Cody Van der Kaay, Catherine Covington, Julie Orlemanski, Rusty Wallace, Jason Cantarella, Seth Dowling, (lower) Ryan Thompson, and (top) Chad Mullikin.
