"Jeg er matematiker og jeg vil stå på dit tag." Sådan hilste Ron Eglash på mange afrikanske familier han mødte, da han forskede i fraktale mønstre han havde set i landsbyer over hele kontinentet.

Ron Eglash is an ethno-mathematician: he studies the way math and cultures intersect. He has shown that many aspects of African design — in architecture, art, even hair braiding — are based on perfect fractal patterns. Full bio
