[ISEA94] Artist Statement: Tamara Munzner – Outside In

Artist Statement by Delle Maxwell

“Outside In” is the result of collaboration between mathematicians, programmers, and designers. We developed a great deal of custom software in addition to Silvio Levy and Tamara Munzner (the other two directors), thanks to Nathaniel Thurston, Stuart Levy, David Ben-Zvi, Daeron Meyer, and all of the other contributors. geom.uiuc.edu/docs/outreach/oi.¬† See related paper ‘Inside Out by Delle Maxwell.

Excerpts from first scene of Outside In, an award-winning 20 minute video showing how to turn a sphere inside out without poking holes or creasing it, bringing advanced topology to a broad audience with computer animation. [source: YouTube]
