"Geometry in Art, Art in Geometry" \ lecture

The associations of arts — especially plastic arts — with geometry are manifold. The painterly perspective (also addressed in the lecture) is not the first instance of using geometry in art. But the mutual interpenetrations of geometry and art work the other way around as well. Faced with the proposition whose proof is lengthy and difficult, namely “There are exactly 17 non-isomorphic groups in two-dimensional crystallography” some artists could say: “Thank you for the information, we already have them.” They could say it, had they not been dead for a really long time.

The lecture will be interpreted into Polish sign language.
