Maths, science, and design thinking

I meet Mary Coupland (UTS Science) and Melissa Silk (UTS Design) who collaborate to connect ways of thinking through maths, science and design.

They are working on a project with Kirstin Banks, a Wiradjuri  woman and astrophysicist at UNSW. A focus of their project is the Southern Cross.

Mary and Melissa collaborated in designing Hungry Birds, an installation for Vivid 2020 (not physically staged due to the Covid-19 restrictions). The installation is designed to attract people to learn and embody mathematical knowledge of structures, through experience in making and displaying paper folded objects.
