Recording of Family Fridays: "Word Patterns: Pinwheels, Tessellations, and Ambigrams" with Scott Kim

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Friday, July 17, 2020.

Appropriate for all ages.

What do calligraphy and logo design have to do with geometry and mathematical patterns?  In this highly participatory online event, mathematical artist and puzzle designer Scott Kim invites us to make patterns out of the written word.  Duplicate letters to make pinwheels, repeat words to tile the plane, and draw ambigrams that read the same upside down and right side up.  Scott will start with a tour of the many ways artists have spun patterns out of words, beginning with the MoMath logo.  Then he’ll lead us through creative exercises where we will create patterns out of our own name and other words.  Along the way we'll learn about geometric transformations, font design, logo design, and mathematical patterns.

Come prepared with blank paper, pen or pencil, and colored pencils or pastels.
