Online tours and field trips to Composite, the gallery at MoMath
Take a tour with artist Anton Bakker and explore the amazing Alternative Perspectives exhibition

MoMath is thrilled to present a groundbreaking new art show in Composite, the gallery at MoMath — virtually!  In Alternative Perspectives, artist Anton Bakker takes us on a journey into a world of mathematical beauty with an added twist: a change in perspective seems to change the very reality of the object before you.  Anton’s sculptures — executed in steel, bronze, or as digital interactives — fix points in space that, as the eye connects them, reveal harmonious alignments as three-dimensional paths.  Lines, curves, knots, spirals, Möbius strips, optical illusions, and fractals — all are explored in this highly engaging virtual show.  Bakker’s work is complemented by two special pieces: an unusual and surprising work by engineers-turned-artists Walt van Ballegooijen and Hans Kuiper and a creative mathematical sculpture by former Bell Labs scientist Alan White.  Learn more about MoMath’s newest temporary exhibition at composite.momath.org and book your field trip at fieldtrips.momath.org or your tour at composite.momath.org today!  Note: Alternative Perspectives will be opening in Composite, the gallery at MoMath, this summer.  Free with Museum admission!
