Event description

Description

There is a connection between the stability of oil rigs, the bending of light during gravitational lensing and life drawing. To understand each, we must understand curved surfaces. Allan McRobie, Department of Engineering, discusses how the best place to learn the language of curves is, perhaps, in a life drawing class.
