Inaugural Lecture – Michael Singer: The aesthetics of shape
Room 505 |
25 Gordon Street | London | WC1H 0AY | United Kingdom
There has been a close relation between aesthetics and geometry since the time of the Ancient Greeks. The golden ratio, the platonic solids and the geometry of perspective are classical examples of the intimate links between the mathematical subject of geometry and the human sense of aesthetics and beauty. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the mathematics is more abstract, but a sense of beauty still guides us in our research.
Michael Singer tries to give a sense of the aesthetics of shape from a modern standpoint.
