Bridging Maths and Arts

The 2019 BRIDGES conference on Mathematics, Art, Music, Architecture, Education, Culture will take place at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria this year from July 16 to 20. I plan on being there and present a paper on Experiencing Mathematics through Astonishment. Here is the abstract!

    In this paper, I briefly explore the notion of astonishment as a way to experience mathematics as work-of-art. I engage with the concept through some scholarly work, and the discuss episodes from my mathematics education researches in which aspects can be observed, and questions can be raised.
