Aalto University's interdisciplinary course "Crystal Flowers in Halls of Mirrors: Mathematics meets Art and Architecture" culminates in the exhibition Kurotuksia - Higher Powers, which opens today at Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre. It celebrates a decade of promoting interdisciplinary interaction in the course and is the second time the course has an exhibition at Heureka.

‘Folding, origami, kirigami, cutting, crumpling and other methods that allow for the transformation of flat material into three-dimensional space are featured in the course and in the exhibition. We also wanted to highlight harmonious colors in the exhibition, such as the Greyscale Rainbows made under the guidance of the Textile Artist of the Year, Laura Isoniemi,’ says Kirsi Peltonen, a senior lecturer in mathematics who is responsible for the course.

The students come from different schools and different stages of their studies, and students from the University of Helsinki also took part in the course. The exhibition is located near the ceiling of Heureka, at a height of about three meters.
