This is the first exhibition to contrast Hiroshi Sugimoto’s photographs of 19th-century mathematical plaster models inspired by Man Ray with his own mathematical models crafted with computer-controlled, precision milling machines.
In the late 1940s, Man Ray created Shakespearean Equations, the culmination of years of work across media inspired by photographs of mathematical models. The artist's inquisitive spirit and mastery of transforming three-dimensional objects into two-dimensional imagery is revealed in this exploration of the intersections of art and science.
