Geometric Sculpture 'Barn-Raising'

Participants will help construct a large mathematical sculpture designed by George Hart, who will explain the underlying geometrical ideas as we go along. The design is an intricate arrangement of laser-cut wooden components which connect with cable ties. Over a several-hour period, participants will join parts together to make modules and then assemble the modules into the final form. It is fine to come for a brief visit any time during the whole period, then come back afterward to see the final result on display.
