Discover the surprising connections between art, science, and math in a talk by Dr. Robert Lang, one of the artists featured in the special exhibition Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami. Lang will describe how geometric concepts led to the solution of a broad class of origami folding problems, while at the same time shedding light on long-standing mathematical questions and solving practical engineering problems, such as making safer airbags, Brobdingnagian space telescopes, and more.
