Mathemalchemy: "Self-similarity and fractals"

featuring Ingrid Daubechies

Tuesday, November 7 at 6:30 pm

(in person)

Self-similarity at different scales abounds in the Mathemalchemy art installation: from the Koch snowflakes to the different sized-bees and their hives, or to the decoration of the Bakery roof and Tess’s kite.  These decorations also play a role in understanding non-periodic tilings!


About Mathemalchemy

Designed and fabricated during the pandemic by a team of 24 mathematical artists and artistic mathematicians, the Mathemalchemy art installation celebrates the fun, beauty, and creativity of mathematics.  It depicts a magical wonderland where critters of all stripes are surrounded by mathematical objects and observe customs interwoven with mathematics.  At present, Mathemalchemy is touring North America; it can also be explored online at  The installation illustrates many different subfields of mathematics, and at many different levels.  Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Ingrid Daubechies and delve a little deeper into several of these, exploring both the mathematical concepts and their visualizations in Mathemalchemy.
