Mathematical models + Shakespeare = huh ?!? Not so fast. Conceptual forms, mathematical models and Shakespeare all unite in not one but two exhibits at Washington, DC’s gem of a museum, The Phillips Collection, located in the city’s Dupont Circle neighborhood.
The first is Man Ray – Human Equations : A Journey from Mathematics to Shakespeare, comprised of models, paintings, and photographs, to unite two very different subjects, i.e, the great Bard himself and mathematical models.
And the second was Hiroshi Sugimoto : Conceptual Forms and Mathematical Models. The Japanese artist’s work was featured in photography and sculptures and focused on the ground-breaking work by Man Ray, thus closing the circle between the two artists.
