MOMATH - Museum of Mathematics

Compounding Visions: The Art of Ryan and Trevor Oakes

Open Daily through Monday, July 21, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath)

Discover the art of perception and math at Compounding Visions: The Art of Ryan and Trevor Oakes on view at the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) until Monday, July 21.

To avoid the distortions that occur when the world is traced onto a flat canvas, identical twins Ryan and Trevor built a concave metal easel that allows them to sketch directly onto the inside of a sphere. Rather than using lenses or mirrors to project an image onto canvas, the twins cross their eyes until an object floats onto their paper’s edge — and then they trace it.

Compounding Visions features drawings, algorithmic watercolor paintings and a mathematical sculpture built with pipe cleaners. Visitors can also view the “optical cockpit” the twins use to reproduce skylines and scenes using their cross-eye technique.

Admission for Compounding Visions is free with museum admission.  Tickets are $15 for adults and $9 for children. For more information, visit momath.org or call 212-542-0566.

Location: National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath), 11 E. 26th Street in Manhattan (between 5th and Madison).

By Subway: Take the #6, F, M, N, or R to 23rd Street, or the #6, N, or R to 28th Street.

Please note the F, M, N, and R lines run closest to MoMath.
