We begin by studying a worst way to hang a painting on a wall. Encouraged by this unusual hanging method we advance to consider how to build a simple computing 'machine' by hanging paintings. Abstract mathematical ideas of knot theory and homotopy theory will be mentioned in passing, but the focus will be in concrete objects.


Rami Luisto is a tall fourth year graduate student in pure mathematics defending his thesis this Spring. His research mainly focuses in metric- and Riemannian geometry, but sometimes he gets excited about curious factoids outside his immediate field and proceeds to go completely overboard with them.
