The Rat in Ratatouille, the fish in Finding Nemo, the robot in WALL-E, and the curly-haired redhead in 2012’s Brave were all created by mathematicians manipulating the most sophisticated tools on the cutting edge of computer technology, computational physics, geometry and approximation theory. Join Tony DeRose, Senior Scientist and lead of the Research Group at PIXAR Animation Studios, as he uses examples from PIXAR’s feature films to provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the role math plays in the digital revolution taking place in film today. For example, for the curly red hair on the heroine in 2012’s Brave, PIXAR published a memo about the high-level math behind it that explained, “To satisfy the artistic requirement of maintaining the curl’s helical shape during motion, we proposed a hair model based upon an extensible elastic rod.” Tony will be introduced by Ira Flatow, Host and Executive Producer of National Public Radio’s popular Science Friday radio program (6:30 pm only).

Wolfgang Laib - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through March 11, 2013 - Midtown

Wolfgang Laib's Pollen from Hazelnut will inhabit the Museum's Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, infusing the space with a yellow luminosity. Laib perceives the Marron Atrium as the Museum's inner sanctum, its womb, and has created this work especially for the site. It will be the artist's largest pollen installation to date, measuring approximately 18 x 21 feet. The hazelnut pollen that will be used in MoMA's installation has been collected by Laib from the natural environment around his home and studio, in a small village in southern Germany, since the mid-1990s. Since the mid-1970s, Laib (German, b. 1950) has been producing sculptures and installations marked by a serene presence and a reductive beauty. These works are often made from one or a combination of two materials, accumulated from natural elements -- such as milk, marble, pollen, rice, and beeswax -- which have been selected for their purity and symbolic associations. Forging a singular path for more than 30 years, Laib amplifies the intrinsic materials and processes found in nature. Laib has stated that "pollen is the potential beginning of the life of the plant. It is as simple, as beautiful, and as complex as this. And of course it has so many meanings. I think everybody who lives knows that pollen is important."

Through March 11, 2013 - Long Island City

Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960–1980 chronicles the vital legacy of the African American arts community in Los Angeles, examining a pioneering group of black artists whose work and connections with other artists of varied ethnic backgrounds helped shape the creative output of Southern California. The exhibition presents approximately 140 works by thirty-two artists active during this historical period, exploring the rising strength of the black community in Los Angeles as well as the increasing political, social, and economic power of African Americans across the nation. Several prominent black artists began their careers in the Los Angeles area, including Melvin Edwards, David Hammons, Maren Hassinger, Senga Nengudi, John Outterbridge, Noah Purifoy, and Betye Saar. Their influence, like that of all of the artists in the exhibition, goes beyond their immediate creative circles and the geography of Los Angeles and is critical to a more complete and dynamic understanding of twentieth-century American Art.
