Join us for a book launch and signing of Form Informed by Maura Biava.
With this publication artist Biava brings together 30 mathematical formulas of European mathematicians from the 17th to the 19th century such as Newton, Pascal, Cartesio, and Bernoulli. Using a mathematic program for computers and with the help of math expert Annamaria Ricotti, Maura Biava combines various 2-dimensional mathematic formulas, thus obtaining formulas with a 3-D representation. The graphic representations of these formulas become new bi-dimensional figures. The publication will be a printing-experiment in its own: creating the artworks by printing them in two overlaying colors on a Riso printer. Published by Konnotation and designed by the Dutch design bureau Meeusontwerpt. Foreword by the artist Dike Blair.
Form Informed is 60 pages, printed in an edition of 100. The book it’s also available in a special edition with a series of 3 prints signed and numbered by the artist. Prints will also be available for sale.
