David Reimann's gave a talk Lifelines: A Series of Artworks that Invite Contemplation on the Human Condition
at the Bridges Conference held virtually 2–3 August 2021.
In this work, a series of abstract artworks inviting contemplation on the human condition is presented.
Each artwork was created using curves with lengths drawn at random from a data set of ages at the time of death in the US during the year 2007.
The connection between these pieces and the data set creates a space for deeper reflection on the human condition.
The title and accompanying text for each piece reveal to the audience a deeper meaning and serve as a further point of engagement.
This approach of linking a data set to art can is general enough to be used with other data sets.
The associated paper appears in the proceedings on pages 305–308.

David Reimann gave a talk Fun with Figurate Numbers at the 2021 On-Line NYC Math Festival, an
online event of the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) on July 17, 2021.
This main focus of the talk was how positive integers can be visually
represented by a geometric
arrangement of items. For
example, square numbers can be
represented by a square grid of
items. Other geometric
arrangements can be created
such as triangles, hexagons, and

at the Joint Mathematics Meetings held virtually 6–9 January 2021.
The pieces, Fabric of Lifelines and Sea of Lifelines, are digital prints that are part of a series
