Is there a mathematical equation for love and the behaviour of a beating heart?  What can be retrieved from life’s catastrophes and wounds?  When our windshield is blurred with rain and we’re wearing our reading glasses, can we learn to look in the rear view mirror and smile?

Martin Figura turns to inspirational mathematics guru Sir Erik Christopher Zeeman’s iconic machine, the moon and photographs to shed light on these pressing questions and to help him sort out love, loss and when to let go.

Doctor Zeeman’s Catastrophe Machine is produced by Tilt, funded by Arts Council England and supported by Norwich Arts Centre and Writer’s Centre Norwich.
