Family Fridays:
“Nothing but Net:
Albrecht Dürer and Animation”

Friday, January 13 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)

(in person)

In 1525, Albrecht Dürer published, for the first time, schemes that could be cut out of paper and folded into the shape of real 3D physical models ("nets").  With just two stages of drawings, Dürer showed the complete process for making these models, which in some sense is a very primitive version of animation.  Join mathematician Rinus Roelofs in an exploration of these "animations" and enjoy the beauty of the folding process as multiple nets are combined to create sometimes surprising results. 

Thanks to the generous support of Two Sigma, this program is free to attendees.
