In this interactive project, Kathrin will work with members of the public to ‘create the mathematical universe’ with the help of a spinning top and pieces of felt, exploring ideas of infinity and the foundations of mathematics. 

Visitors are invited to create their very own piece of the universe which will form part of the exhibit at Tate Exchange. 

The project is part of Queen Mary’s annual takeover of the Tate Exchange space at the Tate Modern, featuring researchers from across the University. This year’s collaboration will explore Ideas in Motion: Borders, Bodies and the Universe

This event is free and open to all. Families with children very welcome.
