“Scattering”. Materials are Gelatin-Silver prints, wire, origami, Styrofoam, and paint.

Congratulations to Libbie Sydnor, a Senior from Hanover, who had her photographic sculpture selected for the Bridges International Conference on Mathematical Connections between art, architecture, music, and culture. Libbie’s piece was selected for the juried art exhibition with works related to the topic. She will travel to present at the 2023 Bridges conference July 27 – 31 at Dalhousie University, located in Nova Scotia, also known as Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq’.  

Libbie was aided on her journey to Nova Scotia by her teacher, Georgianne Stinnett, who encouraged and photographed her work for submission.

The goal of the Bridges Organization is to foster research, practice, and new interest in mathematical connections to art, music, architecture, and culture. All too often, mathematics can seem disconnected from or even antithetical to these other topics. We believe that mathematics and art can inform and enrich each other, that there are great ideas waiting to be found in mathematical analysis and synthesis of art, and that artistic thinking and activities can enliven the mathematics classroom.
