Mathematics is the universal language. All of nature, from the smallest
nautilus shell to the largest galaxy, is constructed according to
mathematical patterns. For thousands of years humans have created art
reflecting these patterns. The films in this program follow in this
tradition, merging art with science.
Guest speaker: Film Professor Mark Kerins, Southern Methodist
University. Sponsored by the Northwestern University Sound Design
