Results from the course “Paul Klee and vector fields”

The artist Paul Klee describes and analyzes his use of symbols and colors in his book “Pädagogisches Skizzenbuch” (pedagogical sketchbook, 1925). He uses arrows for means of illustrations and also discusses the arrow itself as an element of his repertoire of symbols. Interestingly, his point of view on arrows matches the way in which vector fields are represented graphically. Based on this connection of mathematics and Klee’s artwork, Henriette Lipschütz and myself developed a concept for a summer school course for gifted high-school students. Its aim was both to introduce the participants to higher-level mathematics and to let them create their own piece of artwork related to the art of Paul Klee and vector fields. This homepage presents the artistic results of the participants.
