GFSW04 - Form in art, toys and games

As described in my book The Seduction of Curves, published by Princeton University Press in August 2017, there are strong links between Catastrophe Theory and many spheres of art. This talk will explore those historical links – most notably via the works of Salvador Dali and the Constructivist artist Naum Gabo. Extending beyond the book, the talk will also look at what possible new avenues this may open up for creative exploration in art and architecture, ranging from light-based works through to a proposed large scale structure/sculpture for the forthcoming Chelsea Flower Show.

This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series.
