The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at
Stony Brook University will showcase "How 'Thinks' Work," an exhibition
designed to explore the human thinking process in relation to
mathematics, human perception, philosophy, language and nature. The
title alludes to the common phrase, “How Things Work,” and suggests the
treatment of the thinking process as a universal mechanism.
Curated by Nina Douglas, PhD, Director of the Art and Science Program
at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, the exhibition consists
of sculpture, installations, prints, performances and media from the Ars
Cora Collective, Tatjana Busch with composer Wolfgang Schmid-Grandy, Helaman Ferguson, the Houdini Collective, and Kiki Smith.
“How ‘Thinks’ Work” is free and open to the public every weekday from
10 am to 5 pm from November 30 through March 1, 2012. The exhibition is
located in the SCGP Gallery and throughout the first and second floors
of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics.
