Appeared on KPCW this morning to talk about my upcoming exhibition, workshops, and residency, at the Leonardo, in Salt lake City – Utah’s Creative Science and Technology Museum. If you’d like to hear the broadcast please visit: http://kpcw.org/2012/09/the-mountain-life-sept-12-2012/.
We talked about my experience as an inventor, and what it takes to be one, but, primarily, we talked about the Geomorph exhibition and how it concentrates on “Discovery Mathematics,” rather than on “Calculator Mathematics;” and about how we need to go back to the point of discovery, to the point in time when a mathematical idea was created, to really understand it, and then, maybe, to change it, or maybe to come up with something better, or more versatile…
Hope to see you at the Leonardo during October. The exhibition starts on October 3rd and I’ll be in residence for the first two weeks and hold organized workshops on the 5th, 6th, 7th, 12th, 13th, and 14th at 3.30pm – but otherwise I’ll be happy to talk and to share.
The Geomorph exhibition runs concurrently with the exhibition, “DaVinci The Genius,” which opens on September 28th and runs through to January – so come to both in October!
