If you ended up here, I’ll guess that you either:
- Googled the Japanese architect Kazuo Shinohara (somehow this short post HOUSES ARE ART: KAZUO SHINOHARA from 2014 contributed to nearly half of the traffic). I think you’d also enjoy Shoji Ueda’s surreal sand dune photography and a private collection of Sicilian tiles.
- Love abstract art and are fascinated by Wifredo Lam, Rothko, Kerry James Marshall, or Murakami. Maybe you’d also be curious to learn more about the neuroscience basis for abstract art in this book summary.
- Work in machine learning and saw my academic website. If you’d like to see the math and the data in art, check out this public New York MoMA dataset, or play around with conformal geometry in Escher’s artwork.
- Know me personally. I’m grateful and honored that you care about what’s on my mind, and thank you for taking the time to read. It’s not always easy to find the right time for a long meaningful conversation in person, but I hope this blog will be a catalyst for us to get to know each other deeper. I’m learning to be more honest with myself, and decided to share some of my darker secrets here in a personal reflection on eating disorder.
