The IMAGINARY exhibition and a competition to design beautiful surfaces are coming to the Brain Research Center in Bar-Ilan

IMAGINARY - through the eyes of mathematics is an interactive exhibition, in which viewers place a formula as they wish on a touch screen and in front of their eyes a surface appears that provides a visualization of the formula, which they can even print in XNUMXD.

This week, the exhibition IMAGINARY - through the eyes of mathematics opens at the Leslie and Susan Gonda (Goldschmidt) Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center at Bar-Ilan University, as well as a surface design competition.

IMAGINARY - through the eyes of mathematics is an interactive exhibition, in which viewers place a formula as they wish on a touch screen and in front of their eyes a surface appears that provides visualization of the formula, which they can also print on 24D and 2015D printers. The exhibition will be open from December 29, 2016 to January XNUMX, XNUMX. Admission is free.

The exhibition is part of a project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research under the title "Research in Germany", and it traveled among the world's leading universities. In recent weeks, a similar exhibition was held at the Keller Science Garden at the Weizmann Institute.

Prof. Mina Teicher, head of the Emi Neter Institute and the organizers of the exhibition (together with Prof. Moshe Bar, director of the Brain Research Center), says that as part of the events surrounding the exhibition, there will also be a competition known as SURFER in which the participants will compete and the winners will be those who create the most beautiful surface using the formulas they set .

On the website of the body that organizes these exhibitions , imaginary.org gave an explanation: "The exhibitions are IMAGINARY's way of reaching a wide audience in the field. They are displayed in galleries, museums, schools, banks, universities, parks or even train stations. The exhibitions are diverse: they can include photos, interactive programs (as in the current exhibition), sculptures. Puzzles, games, bulletin boards and more. Anyone who is interested can produce the materials for the exhibition themselves and present it even at home."
"The exhibition IMAGINARY - through the eyes of mathematics is a traveling interactive exhibition originally developed in 2008 by the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach. The goal is to present simulations, interactive installations, virtual reality, XNUMXD objects and their theoretical moment in algebraic geometry and through singularity theory in an attractive and understandable way to the general public."

The organizers ask potential sponsors for the competition to contact Arkadius Kalka at arkadius.kalka@rub.de
