Abstract

This presentation will feature a reading of Denin Koch's creative non-fiction work Fractals. A Q-and-A session with the author will follow. The essay combines research on the mathematical concept of fractals with a personal narrative on depression to create a multi-disciplinary piece of art. The work is structured around five distinct episodes or occurences, with facts on fractals preceding each section of narrative, creating a meta-layered piece. The presentation will show the value of academic research to the artistic disciplines and how empirical data can have a beautiful relationship with our personal lives.
