Banquet Talk

Evening Banquet Speaker

Kelly Delp

Kelly Delp, Ithaca College

Title: "Playing with Surfaces: Spheres, Monkey Pants, and Zippergons"

Abstract: "I will describe a process, inspired by clothing design, of smoothing an octahedron into a round sphere. This process was adapted to build many surfaces out of paper and craft foam. The pattern pieces for the surfaces were designed using a dynamic Mathematica notebook, and cut using a digital cutter. This project was joint with Bill Thurston."
