Art + Geometry = Colorful 3D Math Sculptures

Art and geometry will intersect in a huge, colorful way at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania Wednesday, November 9 as students create giant string art circles with geometric shapes using colorful surveyor’s tape and wooden stakes at two outdoor locations on campus.

In a project called “Calculating Art,” ESU math and art students will install four circles, each 20 to 30 feet in diameter, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday in front of the Hoeffner Science and Technology Center and behind Koehler Fieldhouse, both accessible from Normal Street. They’ll use mathematical calculations to figure out how long each piece of tape must be and where the stakes go to create patterns and shapes within the circles similar to those found in string art or the children’s toy Spirograph.
