Perhaps it was affected but it seems incredible that maestro Collings has only just contemplated how maths and physics inform process and aesthics and perceptions of the world. Still it is entertaining watching him struggle with the abstractions and concepts he is presented with. The programme Beautiful Equations on UK BBC 4 will only be available for 7 days so catch it while you can.
I also enjoyed Horizon's Fermat's Last Theorem. The emotional commitment, isolation and inventiveness of Andrew Wiles in his search to crack the daunting proposition of xn + yn = zn . I vainly empathised with his balancing of the formal traditions with the unlikely and the evident enlightenment when the solution revealed itself. An abstract artist surely?
