“We are thrilled to partner with Anton Bakker to open MoMath’s first virtual exhibition in Composite, the gallery at MoMath, for visitors from around the world to enjoy,” said Cindy Lawrence, CEO and Executive Director of MoMath. “This groundbreaking exhibition will showcase how a change in perspective can seem to change the very reality of the objects before you. Combining a visually stunning display with unprecedented three-dimensional interactivity, Alternative Perspective takes the visitor on an incredible journey of surprise and wonder. During these very challenging times while MoMath and many museums remain closed, we’re pleased to offer this engaging and highly interactive virtual exhibit to people of all ages.”
Bakker’s sculptures, executed in steel, bronze, or as digital interactives, are constructed at vastly different scales and in multiple dimensions that connect points in space to create different perspectives. Visitors will be able to virtually interact with 3D models of each sculpture, and read descriptions that explain the mathematics Bakker used in each of his designs and how math can influence the changes in one’s perspective when viewing his sculptures from different angles.
