Author:Collins, Julia; and Shepherd, Madeleine
Description: A collaboration between mathematician Julia Collins and artist Madeleine Shepherd to "design and create a series of sculptures made out of shirts and representing different concepts in mathematics." With funding by the Art Science Collaborative (ASCUS), The Mathematician's Shirts project will be exhibited "in a location not traditionally associated with either artists or scientists.... to encourage the public to engage with both the artistic and mathematical ideas behind the sculpture." Follow the project's progress through its blog, which dates back to June, 2011.
