Webinar on Geometry of Flatland and Kandinsky

The Webinar on Geometry of Flatland and Kandinsky took place on Friday, September 24th, 2021 from 12 pm until 1 pm, with Yetza Diaz, Professor of Mathematics at the Nueva Granada Military University in Colombia, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker explained that Flatland is a fantastic scientific literary work of art written by Edwin A. Abbott that describes a space of two dimensions inhabited by geometric figures with feelings and human thoughts. Yetza Diaz shared that Wassily Kandinsky was a Russian painter, precursor of abstract art in painting and art theorist, with whom lyrical abstraction and expressionism began. The speaker compared the narrative of Flatland and the expressionism of Kandinsky through graphic interpretation.
