Reflections: Geometries of the Reflected World
Opening Thursday, March 1

MoMath presents Reflections, an exploration of the intriguing geometries of the reflected world. Reflections have fascinated humanity since time immemorial. The nature of the image we see in a mirror, or in a still body of water, can seem paradoxical and mysterious. Through a series of engaging interactive experiences, Reflections explores the intriguing geometries of the reflected world, revealing profound truths about the very nature of space.

Family Fridays at MoMath presented by Two Sigma: “Is What You See Really What You Get? The Art of Anamorphosis” with Cathy Wang
Friday, March 2, 6:30 pm

“It’s all about the perspective!” This is a saying we often hear in our daily lives, but can we explore its meaning through art? An anamorphosis is a deformed image projection that appears in its true form when viewed with a special device or from a unique vantage point. Join us in investigating the anamorphoses used in several unique and surprising art pieces, then use a little bit of math to create your very own cylindrical mirror anamorphosis. After all, it’s all about the perspective! Learn more and register at familyfridays.momath.org.

Math Encounters: “From Simplicity to Complexity: What Happens Next?” with Roger Antonsen
Wednesday, March 7, 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm

Simple assumptions often give rise to surprising and delightful consequences. Think about games and puzzles like chess and Rubik’s cube, where enormous complexity arises from simple rules. The same is true of cellular automata, juggling, fractals, and more! Discover how creative computer programming can be used to explore mathematical structures as Roger Antonsen, computer scientist and award-winning math communicator, presents a visual and playful talk on the connections between simple assumptions and their complex consequences. Light refreshments will be served after the 4:00 pm session and immediately before the 7:00 pm session. Learn more and register at mathencounters.org. Plus, earn a free Math Encounters t-shirt… see friendme.momath.org.
