C-U-B-E is pleased to feature visual outcomes of an interdisciplinary workshop, unsolved: math+de-sign, a pilot program designed for math, art, and design research, with the goal of making a product to be used in math outreach contexts.

Closing Reception: May 3 at 5:30 pm

The workshop was held on April 8, 2017 and involved math and design students participating in three sessions. In the first session, they explored conditional design methods which were introduced by Assistant Professor of Graphic Design Moon Jang. In the second session, Associate Professor of Mathematics David Gay presented and explained an unsolved math problem then all participants engaged in discussions and attempted to solve the problem by making poly-cubes (multiple cubes combined together) and unfolded cube drawings. In the last session, all participants explored different ways of visualizing and understanding the unsolved problem in order to communicate it graphically. This exhibition displays the process of solving the problem and includes visual exercises and outcomes from the workshop.
