Computer graphics provides opportunities to interact with, calculate and visualize multidimensional space. This is one of our community's important frontiers and has been compared to the revolution of linear perspective during the Renaissance. Join us to explore the visualization of multidimensional space, its evolution in entertainment, and how advanced mathematics offers unique computational advantages.
