These ingenious activities, devised to learn while having fun, propose the exploration of dots and lines in various dimensions.

Starting from the plane (2 dimensions), we’ll discover how certain optical games can mislead the eye completely. We will then build our own dot·line models and make them repeat themselves to infinity using multiple mirrors.

We will carry out topology exercises creating figures with pieces of rope, and finally, we will explore 3D space using our arms as lines and hands as dots (or knots) to collectively create funny structures that will make us rethink our understanding of Space.
