The Seduction of Curves: The Lines of Beauty That Connect Mathematics, Art, and the Nude
Sunday 1 April
Curves are seductive. These smooth, organic lines and surfaces—like those of the human body—appeal to us in an instinctive, visceral way that straight lines or the perfect shapes of classical geometry never could. Allan McRobie of the University of Cambridge, takes us on an alluring exploration of the beautiful curves that shape our world—from our bodies to Salvador Dalí’s paintings and the space-time fabric of the universe itself.
