Artists: Make a formula for the 21st Century

London art museum curator Hans Ulrich Obrist is obsessed with formulas and as such he has been for 15 years asking some of the most influential artists and thinkers today – including Damien Hirst, Yoko Ono and Brian Eno – to come up with a “formula for the 21st Century.”

The Independent reports on Obrist’s project, which has led to his new book, Formulas For Now, featuring more than 100 of the responses he received.

Here are a few of them (Click to enlarge any of them):

Damien Hirst:

JG Ballard:

Yoko Ono:

Gilbert + George:

Brian Eno:

Keith Tyson:

Tacita Dean:

Cao Fei:

Which one do you think works? What would be your formula to live succesfully in the 21st century?

One thought on “Artists: Make a formula for the 21st Century

  1. I find Tacita Dean’s to be the most descriptive as well as having a interesting aesthetic.
    I also like Yoko Ono’s because she has mapped out a 2 dimensional a verbogeometric word-axis and those are always interesting if just for the structure.

    Please Google: “Verbogeometry”
