Bending Lines

Tuesday, April 13 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)

Free to members!

Bending Lines is a story of obsession, of vision, and of the enduring conversation between art and science.  It uncovers the aged Robert Wiggs, an amateur mathematician, obscured by time and his profession, whose artistic work communicates the universal quest to discover the essence of the natural world.  Never formally trained in mathematics, Wiggs looks back on a lifelong obsession with patterns in nature that helped him create a sculptural geometric system that rivaled the work of academic mathematicians, and eventually led him to scientific discovery.  The film had its world premiere at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in 2018 and has since gone on to screen throughout the world at conferences and festivals with a high focus on art, intellectual curiosity, nature, and mathematics.  An exclusive screening of the film (82 minutes) will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Allison and Peter DeHart, the film's directors; Calvin Wiggs, geologist and son of Robert Wiggs; and Carlo Séquin, UC Berkeley physicist, computer scientist, and mathematical artist.

This is a live-streamed event.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
