Predictability and its Limits

LSE Arts public exhibition

Date: Monday 27 February - Friday 24 March 2017 
Time: Mon-Fri 10am-8pm
Venue: Atrium Gallery, Old Building

Over the past few years artist Fiorella Lavado and Philosopher Roman Frigg have been collaborating in an art-science project concerning research about the limits of predictability, in particular in the case of climate models.

For almost a decade, Frigg has been working with group of physicists and statisticians in LSE’s Centre for the Analysis of Time Series; in a project aiming to understand the scope and limitations of model-based projections. Lavado, who likes to explore diverse scientific themes and to take inspiration in the world beyond direct sensual experience, got involved in the project about five years ago and started producing drawings; making key insights of the project visible, and thereby accessible to a audience of non-specialists.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the  LSE Arts website.
