The new work, a result of the long standing collaboration between artist and mathematician, explores the contrasting role of the riddle, as a problem in mathematics vs. its various cultural forms.
The work is solvable in several ways through a web of word plays and calculations. The Artist has offered a prize of a fully funded round trip to Bletchley Park, UK and afternoon tea with the work’s creators for the most elegant solution.
All submissions to be emailed to the artist firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
St Edmund Hall
with an email to let me know it’s in the post.
