Anton Bakker. Courtesy National Museum of Mathematics. Alternative Perspective by artist Anton Bakker is the world’s first-ever art exhibition featuring virtual, augmented, and mixed reality interactions, opening at the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) on Saturday, August 15 at 2 p.m. EDT. This virtual exhibition showcases art sculptures designed from mathematical principles that explore the frontiers of perspective and perception. Visitors will go on a virtual journey through Alternative Perspective in which Bakker’s three-dimensional sculptures reveal how one’s perspective changes the reality of the object before them using underlying mathematical themes, including polylines, curves, knots, spirals, Möbius strips, optical illusions, and fractals.
