Undo your Maths

Undo your Maths

Using mathematics we can describe in an abstract and general way the relationships we develop with things, people, nature, earth, animals, the sky, and the molecules of material and immaterial reality, creating algorithmic processes and machines that organize, form, shape, evaluate, predict, and construct our reality and certainty, and eventually regulate, control and govern. A group of students are venturing a series of life-changing reversals. Through improvised games and activities, they experiment with various ways of transitioning, transforming, rearranging and rebuilding by linking mathematics to questioning, doubt, uncertainty, to the irregular and the unknown. These games and activities aim to promote certain patterns, regularities and processes, certain identities, patterns of behavior and figures, to point out how we value goods, time, money, exchanges and interactions by breaking free of our everyday routine.

These games and activities have been designed and implemented within the framework of the course ‘Ethnographic Studies with(in) Practices of TechnoMathematics’, by a group of students of the Department of Early Childhood Education. They will be held in specific points along a certain route in the city of Volos, on Sunday June 3rd, from 5 to 9 pm. Let’s all walk together!
