Math Encounters: Encountering Dalí in the Fourth Dimension
Wednesday, November 6, 4:00 pm or 7:00 pm

Prominent Spanish painter Salvador Dalí was fascinated by mathematics, and his 1954 painting “Corpus Hypercubicus” features an unfolded four-dimensional hypercube. Where did he find his inspirations and how did he construct his paintings? Join mathematician Tom Banchoff as he describes a series of yearly encounters with Dalí starting in New York City in 1975, featuring polyhedral models, computer animations of surfaces, stereoscopic oil paintings, distorted perspective, and catastrophe theory. Tom will be introduced by Tony Robbin, Soho artist and author of fourfield: Computers, Art, & the 4th Dimension and Shadows of Reality. For further information and to register, visit Note that the 7:00 pm session is currently full, but you may register for the waiting list for that session. The 4:00 pm session is available.
