Orders of Magnitude OOM 

An experiment in exponential self funding.

The Original £1 Challenge

The idea is based upon exponential growth in technology, computers. I was also inspired by the story of the wheat or rice and the chessboard. Here is a short video to explain…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3d0Y-JpRRg

My goal is to start with a £1  investment and use the money to create a piece of art and double up my investment 20 times. i.e.. create 20 works of art doubling and funding exponentially each time.

I have created a structure that will fund my creative ideas without the need of a funding organisation.

I have to achieve 20 levels here is the structure…
