MAA Found Math 2010 - Week 4

 

FOUND MATH:"Meditations, 1998" by Richard Warner (Santa Rosa) was awarded third prize at the 2010 Joint Mathematics Meetings Exhibition of Mathematical Art.

"Meditations, 1998" is made of plastic and wood. Warner explained his piece in the Exhibition's program; "The two pieces give alternate views of the same three-dimensional surface The sculture has been used for classroom illustrations of the concept of partial derivatives as well as integration of functions of two variables. Since the construction is with clear plastic, a myriad of deligthful views of intersecting curves can be found allowing the viewer to hypersee the surface."
