This is a landing page for our November 2019 visit to ICERM to collaborate with other artists, mathematicians, and craftspeople…

Cherry Arbor Design was founded by Heidi Robb and Pete Benson in 2017. We make pieces that encourage mathematical inquiry by exploiting artistic play as a hook into deeper study. In two dimensions, we use tilings and dissections to learn about geometry, tessellations, fractals, golden ratio themes, and knots. We recently began investigating 3D. Related work:
