Hommáge to Mauro Francaviglia: Experience Workshop’s Mathematical Art Exhibit at APLIMAT 2017, Bratislava

Between January 31 – February 2, 2017 Experience Workshop’s “Travelling Bridges” Mathematical Art Exhibit will be hosted at APLIMAT 2017 Conference in Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, as a hommáge for the internationally renowned Italian mathematician Mauro Francaviglia (1953-2013).

Mauro Francaviglia was not only a friend of many Experience Workshop member mathematicians and artists, but he has also played key-role in the organization of APLIMAT Conferences together with his wife, the artist and scholar Marcella G. Lorenzi. The exhibit, curated by Marcella G. Lorenzi, Kristóf Fenyvesi, Ildikó Szabó and László Vörös contains artworks, which Professor Francaviglia has enjoyed as part of Bridges Organization’s Mathematical Art Exhibit

The exhibition space will also serve as an oasis for intellectual recreation in the conference coffee breaks with several puzzles and mathematical art toys, representing Professor Francaviglia playful spirit and small bits of Experience Workshop’s vision on STEAM education.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) integration in learning represents a dynamically developing, yet largely unexplored field. We wish to open our growing collection of mathematically inspired artworks, educational tools and other resources for children, families, and teachers to provide a snapshot of the fantastic potentials in collaboration and merging different fields. The collection is based on Bridges Hungary 2010’s art exhibition, where artists from all over the world were represented.

Workshops in the Exhibition Space!

The best way to learn is to have fun while you learn. Jomili Cubes from László Lukovics (Slovakia) are great examples of this. There are only 8 different types of modules in the set, but these few simple cubes can be your tool to create a masterpiece. Jomili proves that creating something great requires logic and some patience to capture all that creativity.

We will have a lot of ITSPHUN pieces and invite everybody to put them together into something great! Big ideas born from small seeds of creativity. Build your own creations or make Platonic or Archimedean solids.

With Lux Blox, brainy builders are now free to make structures that curve, bend, and move. By using Lux’s futuristic modules, you really can create everything from scientific models in geometry, chemistry, physics and biology to the complex structures of engineering, architecture, contemporary design or a funny robot based on your unlimited fantasy.

Zometool from USA is for discovering the language of space and 4Dframe from Korea is really your tool to simply build something amazingly complex!
