Abstract: Given an algebraic variety X, we can ask what the "space" of vector
bundles on X looks like.  What are its geometric and topological
properties?  How can it deform?  How do these properties reflect
similar properties of the original variety X?  Also, why did I write
the word space in quotation marks?  Much is known when X is one
dimensional (so the complex points are a Riemann surface) and I will
summarize some of the history here.  The case of two dimensions is
already filled with mystery.  I will discuss some work motivated
towards understanding the two dimensional case.
