Eric Paterniani will be part of the ensemble of puppeteers showing the piece "Erdos" for The Puppet Lab at the new St. Anne Warehouse.
"Erdos" is a new puppet piece conceived by artist and puppeteer Kate Brehm. It is inspired by a theoretical math puzzle called the Erdos Discrepency Problem that was proposed in the 1930's and the first portion of which was solved in 2014 by a computer. However, the proof for that solution is so long that a human would not be able to verify it's accuracy in a single lifetime. Ultimately, Erdos is a meditation on our relationship with technology and the role of trust between a human and computer.
