Numbers in Nature: A Mirror Maze

Jun 4, 2021 - Sep 19, 2021


"Numbers in Nature: A Mirror Maze" is an immersive experience about math that's hardly by the numbers. The exhibition beautifully illustrates how patterns surround us in nature. They form the veins in a leaf, the spiral of a nautilus and the spots on a giraffe. The key to unlocking these patterns is math. Guests enjoy fun hands-on activities to spot patterns in music, art, architecture and even their own bodies. The centerpiece of this math lesson is a giant mirror maze — a sea of equilateral triangle chambers that feel as if you've stepped into a kaleidoscope. The maze itself is a pattern, combining repetition, symmetry and tessellation. "Numbers in Nature" adds up to a wonderful new way to look at the world around you!
