A Conversation about Zero

Posted by

As the eve of our installation approaches and the Marfa Dialogues have begun, we would like to propose a conversation.  In particular, a conversation about zero – truly – just zero.

As zero often connotes nothing, there is a peculiar amount of emotion evoked by its existence.  What would we do with all of this negative space?

Well, here’s a thought:  zero is the place that negatives turn to positive.  It is the seemingly arbitrary point where the global consultation stops being a survey of existing individual thought to become a statement of shared thoughts and goals.  The “emptiness” or “lack” is in fact a fullness of potential and development.

Zero has a relevant, beautiful history and mathematical place – its form provoking a whole, circular, smooth actuality.  So, please, join in on the conversation.  Leave comments and thoughts here, and share with others.  How can we use this number to connect us with sustainability and positive development?
