GFSW04 - Form in art, toys and games

How do you design a coin that lands on its edge 1/3 of the time ? How might one throw accurately ? How does one walk along a straight line ? How can one visualize chance ? Each of these problems invokes geometric concepts in a probabilistic setting. I will discuss solutions to some of these problems that lie at the intersection of cognition, neuroscience and behavior –  and thus are of relevance to art and science.
