Stony Brook University's George Hart will present "From Mathematics to Sculpture" at RIT's Webb Auditorium (1350 James Booth Hall, Lomb Memorial Drive, Henrietta) on Thursday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. Hart will discuss examples of his mathematically-informed sculptures, for which he applies computer technology for their creation. Hart often uses laser-cutting, plasma-cutting, or 3D-printing technologies for the realization of his works in metal, wood, plastic, and found objects. Physical examples of the work will be on hand to illustrate the presentation.
