M247: The Fringes of Chaos in Splash 2013 (Apr. 06, 2013)
At the intersection of math and art is chaos. This class is about chaos and beautifully symmetric infinitely detailed highly organized geometry. What do they have to do with each other, and what do they have to do with nature? Can chaos create order, how do patterns emerge out of complete disorder? What does it mean to have a 1.585 dimensional shape? To quote Tom Stoppard in his play "Arcadia": The unpredictable and the predetermined unfold together to make everything the way it is. It's how nature creates itself, on every scale, the snowflake and the snowstorm.
