THE POETRY OF LOGICAL IDEAS: MATHEMATICS AND FILM

THU, JUL 30 / 7 pm
Curated by Clint Enns

A return visit (newly modified) of last year’s smash success from Clint Enns’ dazzling evening of The Poetry of Logical Ideas: Mathematics and Film – a program which demonstrates the beauty of mathematics and/or mathematical thought and experimental film.

Featuring Norman McLaren’s 1971 film Synchromy/Synchromie (synchronization of image and sound in the truest sense of the word) as well as Larry Kurnarsky’s An Aesthetic Indulgence – about Nathan Medelsohn, former chair of the University of Manitoba’s Mathematics department. An Aesthetic Indulgence is about family, friends, wisdom and the beauty that changes the world. Also includes Eric Martin’s Flatland, Phillip Stapp’s Symmetry and Donald in Mathmagic Land. The highlight of the evening is Clint’s brilliant spoken and visual essay, Representations of Mathematics in Cinema – including good and bad.
