Last year’s, now legendary, 24- Hour Interview Marathon was expanded in scope. The 24-Hour Serpentine Gallery Experiment Marathon 2007, introduced by Julia Peyton-Jones and presented by Olafur Eliasson and Hans Ulrich Obrist, took place in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007 and featured experiments performed by leading artists, architects and scientists.

The experiments explored ideas of time, space and of reality through models, vibrations and perception, investigating Eliasson's assertion that 'What we have in common is that we are different.'

"I'm here working for the audience... Artists often say they are interested in posing questions. I'm here to answer questions."
