Elantu Veovode: Knotwork Paintings

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on February 26, 2013 in Odum Library

The art display outside the Hub on the 2nd floor features paintings by Elantu Baiat Veovode.

Many of Veovode’s works are based on mathematics, repeating motifs and knots around a number.

The use of plants and animals in my designs defines my work. I begin with the zoomorphs, arranged in a pleasing mathematical relationship to one another, and then design the knotwork to complement the figures. In many cases, the knotwork is designed to describe movement associated with the animal.”

The three examples of her more recent work– shown on the west wall of our gallery space– incorporate images from physics and string theory.

Classes are cancelled, but we're staying open!

by Jeffrey Gallant on February 25, 2013 in Odum Library

As many of you have probably heard, the university recently sent out a notice that all classes and campus activities taking place after 5 PM were cancelled. However, you can still stop by Odum Library to get in out of the rain and put your free time to good use! We’ll still be maintaining our regular hours tonight, which means we’ll be open until 2 AM and our Internet Cafe will be open all night.

With much of the northeastern U.S. covered in snow, February might seem the cruelest month of 2013. February is also American Heart Month, and you can learn a lot about heart health and wellness from the U.S. government:
