Pau Atela, professor of mathematics at Smith College, talk about Smith's MathStudio as part of the Lenora Lecture Series.
MathStudio at Smith College is an ongoing creative space focusing on process and dialogue between mathematics and art. It is a gallery space for interactions between practitioners in the arts and sciences; it can extend its influence and facilitate more ongoing interactions between artists and students. It functions as a teaching room and an active working laboratory where faculty, students, artists and visiting scholars can propose and explore ideas through common projects. MathStudio operates under three underlying principles: 1) that work not be removed or broken down but remain to stimulate and continue conversations and activities as part of establishing a regenerative and responsive environment; 2) that the studio serves as an informal exhibition area for a general public that showcases the dialogues and possibilities for pedagogy in math and art; 3) that it be construed by all as a creative, experimental space for investigative work.
