Untitled (Ted Agoos AIA)

About the Print

Reflections and mirrored images are often used to  create visual excitement, extend senses of depth  and length, and create other enhancing effects in  the design of buildings and their interiors. Here is  a short video of architect Ted Agoos using his  line-drawing skill to create form and experience  the effect of mirrored imagery as he pulls his print  in the Brandywine Workshop print studio.

Curriculum Connections

Suggested Topics for Algebra I and Geometry

Algebra I:

The resources provided can be used early on in an Algebra class to help students think in multiple dimen- sions. The artworks can be used to demonstrate illusions intended as a design element or to help students imagine space constructed or deconstructed from forms or shapes within a space. The ability to visualize concepts through art can make advanced math more accessible to students early on.

Geometry:

Some may want to use images in the Artura.org library to explore more complex uses of advanced math to create the illusions of space and solve spatial dynamic issues for three-dimensional works such as stand-alone sculpture and site-specific, public artworks. The laying of bricks or ceramic tiles is a skilled craft that can involve creativity and innovation in bricks or tiles are set and many available options in color, design, and texture are used. Sculptors such as Melvin Edwards, Richard Hunt, and John T. Scott have consistently used higher math concepts in the creation of large scale, space-defining public art.
