Title: Mathematical Illustration, Experimentation, and Exploration

Abstract:We will explore how illustration can be a powerful tool for mathematical research and exposition. We will give examples of illustrations of mathematics drawing from a broad array of techniques, including computer graphics, sculpture, digital fabrication, and fiber arts. We will share some applications of these techniques, explaining how some of these projects led to new mathematical theorems, while others led to art installations, and in at least one case, both.
