The big question


If you got tickets to the Serpentine Gallery’s annual Experiment Marathon last week, well colour me jealous. It sounds like it was an amazing collection of artists and scientists strutting their stuff.

But if, like me, you are living it vicariously through the web, check out the what the Edge newsletter is doing online to complement the show: single pages of size A4 paper on which artists, writers, scientists had responded to the question: “What Is Your Formula?” Among the pieces are formulas by quantum physicist David Deutsch, artist and musician Brian Eno, architect Rem Koolhaas, and fractal mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot.

Whether you are a scientist or not, you will find something understandable and thought-provoking.


This is Mandelbrot’s answer. See the rest here.
