Statistics students help curate 15 sculptures on campus

CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

Kate Greder, University Museums, has been following a group of Statistics students around with a camera as they curate a temporary sculpture exhibition using “dimensional geometry and statistical algorithms.”

Beginning in the spring of 2015, Statistics students are helping Iowa State’s University Museums curate the fifteen sculptures that make up Chuck Ginnever’s Rashomon series. Each of the fifteen sculptures can be placed in fifteen different positions. Using high dimensional geometry and statistical algorithms, statistics students are rotating the sculptures each week to experiment with the various permutations possible within the series.
