A bridge between Art and Maths (28/6/2016) [fr]
By revealing intangible links between Art and Maths, Prof. Cucker brought the audience upon a bridge between Maths and Art!
Prof. Felipe Cucker is a professor of Mathematics at CityU (who wrote the book "Manifold Mirrors: The Crossing Paths of the Arts and Mathematics", Cambridge Univ. Press, 2013). This talk was the second edition. The first took place on June 3, 2016 where HK France Alumni were also enjoying crossing the bridge both between Art and Maths but also between Hong Kong and France!
These events were great moments to share about how Maths and science impacted each other and it gave a chance to visit the Puerta Roja’ exhibition privately and enjoy the good time with people with various background (science, university, art, design…) around a glass of wine!
These events were co-organized by the cultural service of the Consulate general of France in Hong Kong and Macau and the Art Gallery and are part of the scientific program focus on Mathematics.

INTANGIBLE SPACE exhibition at Puerta Roja Gallery is an associated project of Le French May 2016
Distinctions between virtual and physical territories are no longer tenable as technology and social media transform contemporary perception of space, time and environment. Opening a dialogue between the works of digital artist Miguel Chevalier and the bamboo sculptor, Laurent Martin “Lo”, Puerta Roja’ Gallery explores the ways in which different artistic processes effect viewer’s perception of ‘Intangible Space’. Using a wide array of artistic mediums; projection, digital print, sculpture, and mobiles from both artists it investigates new contrasts and negations of space imposed by the digital world, between moving sculptures and the modern and less tangible world we live in.
