The Divine Art of Kolam: Sacred Geometry and Cymatics
We celebrated heritage week from Nov 19th – 25th, and that meant celebrating every aspect of Indian culture and heritage.
This December 10th at 6PM, we invite you to our webinar on The Divine Art of Kolam: Sacred Geometry and Cymatics.
Kolam is a more than a thousand year old living tradition that stays in almost every household. It is a ritual for Indian women to wake up at early hours of the morning to draw a beautiful kolam in front of their houses.
Scientists and mathematicians often talk about elegant equations or proofs that are simple yet profound, representing secrets of the universe, through their intrinsic beauty and various interpretations. Similarly, Kolams are ancient drawings with patterns that are aesthetically beautiful and mathematically inclined, while also representing deeper philosophies and life lessons – Shanthi Chandrasekar
This webinar, we have Dr Deepa Duraiswamy, Smt Shanthi Chandrasekar and Prof Oscar Garcia-Prada, speaking on aspects of Kolam ranging from mathematics, art, science and finally delving into the divine.
