Tangram, The link between mathematics and art

Cyprus : Tangram, The link between mathematics and art

Leaving aside the controversial forms of art, the artist and academic at the University of Nicosia, Maria Chrisfororou presents the event Tangram: The link between mathematics and art. The event includes an interactive workshop along with interesting visual and digital interventions.

Maria Christoforou deals with the correlation of mathematics and art, inspired by Tangram's philosophy, and focuses mainly on Geometry and the geometric shapes that are essentially between us.

Even though mathematics and art rely on two different themes, they are probably not so different from each other! Mathematics and art are mainly interrelated with their "philosophy," the depiction of the abstract or realistic reality of which we are all part of it.

As the artist says, "We can argue that mathematics and art are two examples of human consciousness, that is, the human perception process, to understand reality. The artist, as well as the mathematician, participate in the human need and understanding of the world. In conclusion, an artistic creation/artwork seems to be realistic or abstract in a mathematical construction. "

Maria Christoforou proposes a delightful artistic and creative experience with Tangram, this ancient and unique Chinese puzzle consisting of seven geometric pieces: One square, one parallelogram and five triangles (two large, two small and a medium sized). The relationship between the shapes is such that, by following some rules, it allows them to fit precisely and create different shapes. With Tangram we create very beautiful artworks in varied and numerous combinations.
