New Number is a lecture about stress, mathematically independence proofs, naive set theories, generalized continuum hypothesis, solving zeta functions, primes of bad reduction, hyper primitives and real and imaginary sets. It starts with a what-is-repetition, addressing the anxieties and concerns of young artists/students, mixes it with philosophy on mathematics and goes on with readings of psychoanalysis. The performance ends with an endeavour to prove a historical mathematical conjecture in silence. The try fails of course, but is definitely productive. The failure to solve the difficult problem is evident for me as it is difficult but still not completely impossible. As someone who has studied applied mathematics, with this performance, I tried to bring my own unfinished business with the 'understanding of mathematics' to the table and the modern science and the relationships in mathematical realness to the social reality of the performance itself. It is a gesture to bring the computational into the artist's stuttering tongue in this digital age; a humorous critique on efficiency, rigour, communication-design and the mathematical.
