The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art & Technology presents “Lines of Sight,” an exhibit exploring the connection between art and mathematics through interactive displays that illustrate fundamental principles behind creating realistic art, virtual reality, computer graphics and optical illusion. The exhibit will open to the public on Friday, January 29, with a free artist’s reception from 5-7 p.m. at The Works Main Gallery, 55 S. 1st Street, Newark, Ohio 43055

“How can a flat computer screen make us feel as if we are moving through a three-dimensional landscape? How can we pinpoint the location of the explosion that damaged St. Paul’s Cathedral during The Blitz in World War II London?” asks exhibit curator Anna Davis, Ph.D., an associate professor of mathematics at Ohio Dominican University. The answers to both questions come to us from linear equations—topics which Davis presents in the context of art history, historic events and fundamental principles of human visual perception. “Lines of Sight” will remain on display until April 10, 2016. Gallery admission is free and open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
