“We are constantly faced with uncertainty. We can’t predict the future nor can we accurately make decisions without taking into account a range of possible outcomes. Risk is part of every decision we make. We need tools to help us deal with risk. The Monte Carlo Method, for example, lets one see all the possible outcomes of one’s decisions. It is both a mathematical technique and a simulation – a risk analysis tool – that has been helping nuclear scientists for decades make decisions under uncertainty. Why not use it for the artist? Taking all this into consideration, is the artwork a materialized simulation of all possible outcomes of risk? A decision in form ‘exhibiting’ the probabilities that have occurred from any choice of action? To this end (and this end alone), this performance will abbreviate for the viewer the artist’s going-for-broke decisions when it comes to the problem of making art.”
