Senior Lecturer Timea Tihanyi is part of a duo that is exploring the creative process both in art and mathematics. She has teamed up with Jayadev Athreya, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, and they call their year-long project Axiomatic, which is supported by a Simpson Center for the Humanities Collaboration Studio Grant.
Tihanyi has created porcelain renderings of four-dimensional geometric objects in three dimensions based on their work. Some of these were on display at the Synaptic Lexicon exhibition during 9e2 in Seattle. An October 2016 article in GeekWire talks about the creation of some of this work.
Open now at Linda Hodges Gallery in Seattle is Tihanyi’s Parlor Games: Scientia, which includes additional Axiomatic work as well as a 155-volume library of bone china porcelain books, created during a summer residency at Sundaymorning@EKWC (European Ceramic Work Center) in the Netherlands. Scientia received a grant from 4Culture and a Milliman Award from the School of Art + Art History + Design. Scientia is open through January 28, 2017.
