on the relationship between davinci and science

I don’t remember at which point I became so interested in DaVinci. To be honest, artwork wise, I am a much bigger fan of Bottecelli, Titan, Klimt, than DaVinci but I find the DaVinci’s application of mathematical (logic) principles to art very interesting. Perhaps, it is because I have always felt so divided between the world of science/math and art. Once I started taking calculus ...

hurricanes

This is an entirely personal post. 😉…. oh, the hurricane. it’s awful. I have been fortunate/unfortunate enough to witness personally several hurricane aftermaths.

Hurricanes themselves do not scare me (although tornodoes scare me to death) but I am totally in awe of them and I do worry about environmental/health affects afterwards. Possessions are ...

Project updates
