Aaron Coleman Exhibition

Arts/Entertainment

Aaron is an artist/printmaker who is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona. Below is a description of his work. My work has evolved into a blanket description of the apocalyptic world in which we live. Police brutality, racial discrimination, religious extremism, persecution of the LGBT communities, economic unrest, global warming, species extinction, habitat loss, holy wars, power trips and ego mania are the extremes my work addresses. Earth is a disaster area, a gigantic crime scene. My work takes on the characteristics of this global chaos. Each piece is an explosive combination of comic book pages, religious iconography and advertising which illustrates a world in ruin and the heroes and villains who occupy it.

Communities West IV

Arts/Entertainment

Communities West IV is the fourth iteration of a biennial exchange. The folio was created with the intention of building community among printmakers living in, or with unyielding ties to the Western United States. In addition to building community, we are also interested in building a survey of printmakers who identify as having ties to the west and following their development through the continued curation of the portfolio. For the 4th iteration of the folio, participants from the first three folios were asked to participate again. The original list has also been added to through suggestions from members and seeking out work at conferences and events. As such the work represented is rich and varied in technique and concept. The artists in the folio are as diverse as the work. The community is made up of veteran and emerging printers, academics and working artists.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Exhibition

Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.

The exhibition includes work from members of the Seattle Camera Club, FSA (Farm Security Administration), f/64 (a group of 20th-century photographers known for precise exposures and depiction of natural forms) and contemporary photography portfolios such as American Roads (printed in 1981), The Museum Project (printed in 2015), and DEMARCATION (printed in 2018).

Struggling with Mathematics: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful!

Conference/Seminar

The ways in which we have traditionally used the word “struggle” in mathematics need to change. All students need GOOD opportunities to struggle with concepts in mathematics in order to make sense of the world around them. No student should be told that they are BAD at math by being labeled as low or struggling. Each individual student deserves guidance to find ways to use their strengths as mathematical assets. We, as teachers of mathematics, can facilitate a classroom in which all students contribute their strengths and learn from others’ strengths to create a class unified in the goal of learning and growing. It is then that both teacher and student alike will see the BEAUTIFUL designs in the seemingly random collections of people, numbers, opportunities, and challenges. These claims will be presented in the context of Dr. DeLeeuw’s personal experiences as a Utah high school teacher and university professor and supported by his and others’ research about mathematics education.

Aaron Coleman Exhibition Reception

Arts/Entertainment

Aaron is an artist/printmaker who is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona. Below is a description of his work. My work has evolved into a blanket description of the apocalyptic world in which we live. Police brutality, racial discrimination, religious extremism, persecution of the LGBT communities, economic unrest, global warming, species extinction, habitat loss, holy wars, power trips and ego mania are the extremes my work addresses. Earth is a disaster area, a gigantic crime scene. My work takes on the characteristics of this global chaos. Each piece is an explosive combination of comic book pages, religious iconography and advertising which illustrates a world in ruin and the heroes and villains who occupy it.

Communities West IV

Arts/Entertainment

Communities West IV is the fourth iteration of a biennial exchange. The folio was created with the intention of building community among printmakers living in, or with unyielding ties to the Western United States. In addition to building community, we are also interested in building a survey of printmakers who identify as having ties to the west and following their development through the continued curation of the portfolio. For the 4th iteration of the folio, participants from the first three folios were asked to participate again. The original list has also been added to through suggestions from members and seeking out work at conferences and events. As such the work represented is rich and varied in technique and concept. The artists in the folio are as diverse as the work. The community is made up of veteran and emerging printers, academics and working artists.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Exhibition

Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.

Applied Mathematics Seminar: Extreme First Passage Times of Diffusion

Conference/Seminar

Speaker: Sean D Lawley, Department of Mathematics, University of Utah

Abstract: Why do 300 million sperm cells search for the oocyte in human fertilization when only a single sperm cell is necessary? Why do 1000 calcium ions enter a dendritic spine when only two ions are necessary to activate the relevant receptors? The seeming redundancy in these and many other biological systems can be understood in terms of extreme first passage time (FPT) theory.

While FPT theory is often used to estimate timescales in biology, the overwhelming majority of studies focus on the time it takes a given single searcher to find a target. However, in many scenarios the more relevant timescale is the FPT of the first searcher to find a target from a large group of searchers. This fastest FPT depends on extremely rare events and it is often orders of magnitude faster than the FPT of a given single searcher. In this talk, we will explain recent results in extreme FPT theory and show how they modify traditional notions of diffusion timescales.
