The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences is fortunate in owning, through generous donations, a number of artefacts which not only enhance the interior and exterior of the building, but are of mathematical, historical and artistic interest. A brief 'tour' of these artefacts is given below - please click on the links or images for enlarged versions and information about each one.
The Newton Institute was delighted to welcome Turner Prize Winning Sculptor Professor Grenville Davey as the artist-in-residence for the duration of the programme The Mathematics and Applications of Branes in String and M-theory from January to June 2012. Professor Davey was working with Dr David Berman, one of the programme organisers, who is an expert in M-theory, an extension of string theory. Together they presented sessions at the Institute to discuss their collaboration on works inspired by ideas from the cutting edge of contemporary theoretical physics.
