In Khayyam-Pascal installation, I screen-printed layers of binomial coefficient numbers, Khayyam’s mathematical notes, and Sierpiński’s triangle patterns on 360 hand-cut felt triangle and laser-cut triangle wood pieces. The pyramid pattern of my installation resembles the Pascal Triangle; the triangular array of binomial coefficients is named after the 17th-century French mathematician, Blaise Pascal. However, the 12th-century Iranian mathematician and poet, Omar Khayyam, had studied it centuries before Pascal. Through this installation, I pay homage to both mathematicians.
Since 2015, Khayyam-Pascal installation has been exhibited at a few galleries and events at Inspace Curatorial (2015), California State University, Stanislaus (2016), NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View (2016), and MIT’s Rotch Library (2018).
Visual Thinking: Six Ways of Picturing Knowledge, 2018
Site-Specific solo exhibition @ MIT’s Rotch Library of Architecture and Planning
Visual Thinking: Six Ways of Picturing Knowledge was a multi-media site-specific solo exhibition at MIT’s Rotch Library of Architecture and Planning. On display from September 28 to December 14, 2018, the exhibit featured six bodies of works, some are inspired by a collection of 17th-19th century books housed at MIT’s Rotch Library and The Institute Archives & Special Collections, including The Grammar of Ornament by Owen Jones, Sidereus Nuncius by Galileo, and The Microscope by Mary Ward.
