Kolam - A Ritualistic Math Art Form

In ancient India mathematical ideas were woven into the metaphysical, religious, and aesthetic fabric of the society. [Sarah Glaz, 2013]. There were no distinct separations as far as knowledge was concerned. Mathematics was integrated into everyday life.

In the 4-session workshop series we will discuss the connections between Kōlam, an ancient everyday ritualistic art form created on thresholds by Tamil women and the mathematical concepts of skip counting, number shapes, reflections, symmetry, graph theory etc.

This workshop will help the participants explore the overlap between culture, art, and mathematics.
