Recently, The Picker Interdisciplinary Science Institute, Colgate University approved the grant “Mathematical Methodologies for Art and Design” - for two years to DeWitt Godfrey, Department of Art & Art History, Tom Tucker, Department of Mathematics, Tomaž Pisanski, University of Ljubljana, and Daniel Bosia, Expedition Engineering, U.K. At the occasion of the Bled 11 conference, three out of four recipients of this interdisciplinary grant met in Slovenia in order to work on the project. This event was initially considered as a public presentation of the project but with current participation considerably outgrew its original scope and turned into an interesting event with over a dozen active participants both covering mathematical, artistic and design aspects of the central theme. It is quite interesting that the essence of the meeting remains closely related to the main idea of the project, which explores the interplay between mathematics, art and design and allows approach both from design, artistic and scientific side. The event is perhaps unusual, since it combines exhibition on the one hand with lectures on the other hand. The former being more usual for artists while the latter is in the domain of science. The organizers come from different sides of the spectrum. Each participant brings his or her autonomous viewpoint and contribution to this important issue. The event will be videotaped by A.V.A. and hence thus recorded for posterity.
