STONY BROOK, NY, November 14, 2011 – On Wednesday, November 30, 2011 the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University will showcase "How 'Thinks' Work," an exhibition designed to explore the human thinking process in relation to mathematics, human perception, philosophy, language and nature. The title alludes to the common phrase, “How Things Work,” and suggests the treatment of the thinking process as a universal mechanism.

Curated by Nina Douglas, Ph.D., Director of the Art and Science Program at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, the exhibition consists of sculpture, installations, prints, performances and media from the Ars Cora Collective, Tatjana Busch with composer Wolfgang Schmid-GrandyHelaman Ferguson, the Houdini Collective, and Kiki Smith

“How ‘Thinks’ Work” is free and open to the public every weekday from 10 AM to 5 PM from November 30 through March 1, 2012. The exhibition is located in the SCGP Gallery and throughout the first and second floors of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics.
