One of the most important patterns that a mathematician looks for is whether or not an object has symmetries i.e. is left unchanged or invariant after some operation, for example reflection or rotation. A square has many symmetries under the operations of rotation and reflection whereas a rectangle has fewer symmetries. The concept of a group of symmetries measures and describes how much symmetry an object has. This concept of a group is one of the most important in mathematics and also helps to describe and explain the natural world. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/symmetries-and-groups Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 1,500 lectures free to access or download from the website.

We are all familiar with patterned wallpaper, but how many regular patterns are there? Can you tile your bathroom floor with square, hexagonal and octagonal tiles? Footballs are made up of pentagons and hexagons, but how many pentagons are there? What are buckyballs, and what have they to do with the Montreal World Fair?

Symmetric things are often more attractive. Symmetry is also a geometric idea: things may have reflection symmetry or rotational symmetry, and so on. What better way to end this series of Geometry lectures on design than by showing how the design of interactive devices, like mobile phones, relates back to symmetry? Symmetry makes a versatile link between human perception and what interactive devices should be designed to do; it makes a constructive link between what is attractive and natural and what is easy to use.

Directors Commentary + Extras at http://symirroretry.com - Five entities established in skateboarding share concepts of individuality, limitation, and knowledge learned from a constant evolving culture. A culture eternally cycling, dying, and rebirthing. Forced down dead end pathways by powerful business entities. Manipulated of progression through decensitized internet labyrinths. Two symmetrical beings, parallel in thought, know only that of which is seen. Controlled by a vivid entity yet handicapped by a lack of capacity of free thought and expression. No ambition? No spirit and fulfillment? Paintings of inner reflection. Still, immovable, and wondering; “What is my love and passion?” A documentary expressing the ‘artist’ journey of becoming. A parallel narrative supporting sentiment of fighting against conformity. A contribution of thought challenging comprehension and expansion. The story of symmetrical mirrors, formed as one entity.
