axiomatic: the creative process in art and mathematics

process   creative team   events

Mathematics is about truth. Art is about beauty. The goal and process of creating mathematics and creating art are considered to be diametrically opposite. Yet, mathematics, intellectually elegant and precise, is also beautiful. And art, while irreverent to rules, is a way of exploring truth, perhaps multiple truths. axiomatic is a crossdisciplinary collaborative research project spearheaded by a mathematician and a visual artist that aims to explore and demystify both disciplines by putting them conversation with one another.
