The Symbolic Sculpture animations were the result of a collaboration between the sculptor John Robinson (1935 - 2007) and the mathematician Nicholas Mee.
The Symbolic Sculpture CD-ROM contains a collection of ray traced animations that depict 24 of John Robinson’s highly acclaimed abstract geometrical sculptures.

The virtual sculptures were displayed alongside the physical sculptures at the Royal Geographical Society during the British Association Creating Sparks festival in September 2000. More recently they were shown at APLIMAT 2009 International Conference on Applied Mathematics in Bratislava and the SCIENAR exhibition in Bucharest hosted by ITC in May/June 2010.
