Art and Artefacts

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 above - please click on the images for more information about each one.

The 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.
