Katie McCallum is engaged in a research project using sculpture to explore the role of physicality in mathematics communication. She ‘s been looking at discourse in mathematics from the perspective of an artist explorer, examining metaphorical language and gesture to learn something about the experience of doing mathematics. Working as an outsider fascinated by mathematics, she uses observation of interactions between experts in a field to overcome the language barrier and open up some of the strange wonder of mathematics to a new audience.
