Brown University – Hyperbolic Workshop

Apr 15 Tue
3:00-5:00 pm @ Leeds Theater
Hyperbolic boa at the Hayward Gallery.

Students at a workshop at the Hayward gallery in London with their newly-hatched hyperbolic boa. From an original pattern by Keith Henderson.

On Tuesday April 15, IFF Director Margaret Wertheim will lead a workshop at Brown University on making hyperbolic space.

In this hands-on workshop, students will construct gorgeously colored paper models of hyperbolic space. In the process we’ll explore the foundations of geometry and learn about the difference between Euclidean, spherical and hyperbolic space. Materials will be supplied. To sign-up for the workshop please email Nancy Safian in the Department of Theater Studies and Performance:

Location: Leeds Theater, Brown University.
