I much prefer art to math. But I have never thought about combining art and math. But Martin Creed did. In “Work No. 232 the whole world + the work = the whole world,” Creed created an equation in neon letters. The piece, which is currently installed in Tate Modern, expresses the vast, yet inclusive nature of art. There is not necessarily one interpretation of a work of art, granting individuals to power to think of their own unique perspective.
