DXARTS assistant professor Afroditi Psarra, will present her research on textile fractal antennas in the context of ICERM's Semester workshop “Illustrating Dynamics and Probability”, which will take place at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island.

The Illustrating Mathematics program at ICERM (Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics) brings together mathematicians, makers, and artists who share a common interest in illustrating mathematical ideas via computational tools.

The goals of the program are to:

  • introduce mathematicians to new computational illustration tools to guide and inform their research;

  • spark collaborations among and between mathematicians, makers and artists;

  • find ways to communicate research mathematics to as wide an audience as possible.

Signal To Noise

The Paraset (Paratrooper radio set) was one of the most notorious of all the transceivers used by the partisan clandestine radio operators during WWII. Often transported in food baskets, suitcases, and other obscure places, it was used for clandestine radio communication primarily in Norway and Europe. The equipment is known as the “Paraset” because it was dropped by parachute for field agents. A fascinating piece of history.

With this exhibition Piksel wants to make an homage to the radio as a device and also to the importance of the listeners. In a historical moment where the FM analogue radio has been shot down and there are voices that claims that "Norway is not prepared for this.” and "Of course there is a lot of nostalgia in radio. That's one of the reasons this switch is so controversial.” Piksel wants to bring some fresh air doing both, recalling the analogue radio and bringing new low-cost digital technologies to the people, radio-makers and emitters.
