Period of residence: April 2013 – April 2015

Pep Vidal has a degree in Mathematics in Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona (UAB) (2008). Special interest in infinitesimal calculs, topology and infinite series. PhD candidate in Physics in UAB and ALBA synchrotron (2009-nowadays). Thesis research about mathematical algorithms for improving accuracy of instruments used in particle accelerators. I have two important conclusions from here: there are some extremely sensitive and complex systems; and I’m not interested in research that doesn’t include my own experience and vital life in the process. Advanced course in Contemporary Art in A*Desk (2011-12), conducted by David Armengol. Work around infinitesimal changes -changes extremely small- produced everywhere. (Almost) infinite and chaotic chains. The butterfly effects, but ‘only’ what is happening in the middle, between the flap and the hurricane. Co-founder of, a project focused on spreading mathematical culture -especially in child- with workshops, talks and other activities.
