J.C. Eaves Lecture 2020

Title: Artistic mathematics: truth and beauty

Abstract: I'll talk about my work in mathematical visualization:
making accurate, effective, and beautiful pictures, models, and
experiences of mathematical concepts. I'll discuss what it is that
makes a visualization compelling, and show many examples in the medium
of 3D printing, as well as some work in virtual reality and spherical
video. I'll also discuss my experiences in teaching a project-based
class on 3D printing for mathematics students.
