Library Lates: Thinking 3D

12 June 2019 7.00pm 9.30pm


Blackwell Hall, Weston Library (Map)


Education |


How did humans first learn to communicate a three-dimensional idea on the two-dimensional page? What can we learn from past attempts by great thinkers like Leonardo, with his heart of glass? And whose work is pushing the boundaries of three-dimensionality in Oxford today?

Join us for an evening of interactive displays from the cutting edges of medicine and astronomy, dancers interpreting the irregular heart, invisible fundamental particles, DNA origami in virtual reality, and the polyhedron toothpick challenge. At this Library Late you’ll experience the third dimension - and beyond - as you never have before.

Thinking 3D: Leonardo to the present exhibition is open from 21 March 2019 to 9 February 2020.
