The Croatian BW section is entirely dedicated to the collaboration of mathematics with art. Curated by Ingeborg Fülepp and Vedrana Mikulić Crnković, respectively professors at the Academy of Fine Arts and at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Rijeka (who are also among the authors of the Rijeka project), and set up by a team of professors and students of both training institutes, the exhibition proposal for Trieste, Outlandish Rijeka, is composed of two interpenetrating projects: A Walk in Memories and Math behind the Walk. The outcome of the collaboration between artists and mathematicians is a virtual walk across the city of Rijeka. In the first project, by scanning a QR code, visitors can extract from the photographs on display the respective 360° videos of different places in the city; in the second, virtual visitors may affect the algorithm that guides them across the city, thus modifying the walk that will be offered to the next visitor.
