The Fixed Point : Bozar
Steel plate, chalk
180 x 60 x 1 cm
Take a sheet of paper from a notepad and crumple it. Then smooth it out and place it back on the pad…
At least one point has returned to its original spot.
This simple fixed-point theorem is applied in many mathematical and scientific fields.
Michel Tombroff’s work is another illustration of a fixed-point theorem.
Wherever this scale model of the BOZAR Lab is placed in the exhibition room, there will always be a single point on the steel plate that is perfectly aligned with its actual location in the room.
This point is indicated by the cross drawn on the plate.
