|Bridges 2017 gamepuzzles visit Canada|
Bridges is an annual conference that celebrates the connections between math, art, architecture, music, poetry and education.|
The conferences are held in various countries, and 2017 was Canada's turn to host it on the elegant campus of the University of Waterloo, Canada, July 27-30, 2017. A great slate of speakers presented talks on a mind-stretching variety of topics to do with math, geometry, artistry, innovations and research. A high point was the keynote talk by Damian Kulash of the fantastic rock and video musician group, OK Go.
Kadon participated in four areas of the conference: art, math, education, and poetry.
