Abstract / Synopsis

The poem-collage pair presented here is a work of collaboration between the mathematician and poet, Sarah Glaz, and the collage and ceramic artist, Mark Sanders. The piece is part of their larger joint poem-collage project involving the history of mathematics. Created at the height of the pandemic, the poem-collage pair reflects the reality of living during a plague and embodies the solace offered by long-distance collaboration and by the arts. Included as background is a brief discussion on the history and mathematics involved, information about Sarah’s poem and Mark’s collage, and a reflection on how the pandemic influenced both the choice of poem and the imagery appearing in the collage.

To see the poem-collage pair as originally envisioned by Sarah and Mark please place them side by side.
