The 6th Annual Bridges Short Movie Festival will include a variety of juried and curated videos and short films. The program will include movies, videos and animations that have been created for educational, corporate and artistic purposes, and will provide another opportunity for you to experience innovative and integrative techniques in the fields of mathematics and art.
We visualize simple geometric beauty combined with mathematical content. Please enjoy.
Using a single formula - a polynomial - the film shows fascinating transformations from a cube to a rhombic dodecahedron, to an octahedron and to a dodecahedron. It was created using the free software SURFER of the IMAGINARY open mathematics platform and will be shown at the Bridges 2015 Short Movie Festival Jul. 31, 2015 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm as well as 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm.
We will also give a short presentation at Bridges, exploring the connection of Pyrite, Plato and the mentioned Polynomial on July 31 at 2:45 pm, room 3, Baltimore University.
The paper is available at the IMAGINARY texts section.
