Simon Singh passed my details on to the Fruitmarket Gallery when they contacted him about talking about the work of the artist Martin Creed. Initially the gallery were interested in a mathematician talking about the concept of zero.
However, the exhibition was full of works like Work No. 928 or Work No. 958 and it struck me that the concepts of the discrete vs continuous and limits were much more interesting, and relevant and bought in zero's alter ego, infinity.
The talk, ‘Much Ado about Nothing’ took place on 13 October 2010.
