a great point of view on moral and ethical standards

“In “Nature by Numbers,” filmmaker Cristobal Vila presents a series of animations illustrating various mathematic principles, beginning with a breathtaking animation of the Fibonacci sequence. Then it moves on to the Golden and Angle Ratios, the Delaunay Triangulation and Voronoi Tessellations. This would be math-class gold, and it’s awfully sweet even if math class is years behind you.”
I’ve stopped showing and posting images of my work for the past couple of months while i work on a new exhibit (no gallery home for it yet). I think it will be another 8 months until i’m done. During this time i will take studio visits from friends, critics, or curious people. If your interested in stopping by email me and i’ll provide an address and beer(s). In the meantime i plan to post a road map for the the ideas which will be presented in the new body of work. Hints the title of the blog, The Companion. I’ve been meaning to post this video of Richard Feynman which is a good starting point to enter the new body of work. Continue the discussion as it applies to your field of study, hobby, or personal intellectual endeavors. You can never have to much Feynman in your life.
The machine, which took only a few hours to come up with Newton’s laws of motion, marks a turning point in the way science is done
a must look and read. Video link is attached
So there was a time about a year ago when i watched this video everyday for a month straight. My last post with Feynman reminded me i should post it. enjoy over and over. A glorious dawn awaits.
Then theres Feynman playing bongos
Derek Waters gets people drunk on film then asks them to tell a story from history. He then gets actors to act out the story. Simple and hilarious. Check out all the drunk history videos.
Heres is a portion of an ongoing online discussion I’ve been having with cognitive scientist Kuba Glazek about what the art-making process possibly looks like from a scientific perspective.
Can you introduce yourself and tell me a little bit about your field of study ?
My name is Kuba Glazek. I am a 4th-year Ph.D. student in the Graduate Program in Brain and Cognitive Sciences at Temple University. Generally speaking, I am interested in exploring the cognitive and neural underpinnings of creative thinking. To clarify, the working definition of creativity involves novelty and appropriateness to a domain, which may be art, science, food, etc. There are definitions of creative people, creative thinking, and creative products.
