In these two lectures, we will hear about fascinating ways in which maths, nature and art interact and influence one another.

Ron Lifshitz is a physics professor using mathematics and geometry to study the structure of matter. Dominic Hopkinson is a sculptor who uses mathematical concepts to create art. Both are constantly guided by the influence of geometry and symmetry in their work. In these lectures, we will hear from both and gain insight into fascinating ways in which maths, nature and art come together to create beautiful forms. 

This lecture is part of Inspired by Bragg series of events, celebrating the life of Nobel prize winner William Henry Bragg, and commemorating the launch of the new Bragg Building at the University of Leeds.
