Author:Thomas Banchoff
Description: A site that documents an art exhibit hosted by the Providence, Rhode Island Art Club in 1996, featuring computer-generated artwork designed by Tom Banchoff in collaboration with Davide Cervone (now at Union College) and student associates at Brown University. These works combine computer graphics and mathematics to form images that are pleasing to the eye and challenging to the mind. Each piece centers around surfaces built in four-dimensional space and displayed in ways that suggest the kinds of transformations that appear when such an object is rotated in that space. An Introduction explores "the best way to display a variety of surfaces in such a way as to encourage many people to interact with them."
