More Cool Math Videos: Erik Demaine
The Museum of Mathematics, which will open in NYC in 2012, has been hosting a series of talks titled Math Encounters. I'm watching Erik Demaine's talk on the Geometry of Origami, but it's so much more than that. It's also about the richness of his relationship with his father, and about the adventures they have. He shows a clip of his father blowing glass while blindfolded. (!) Why? Because it sounded interesting to focus on the tactile aspect of the process.
