The Museum hosted a debate around a year ago highlighting the pros and cons regarding the current state of high school level mathematical education in the United States. I was asked to create a backdrop (which also acted as an advertisement on the Museum website).
Unfortunately this project - a promotional brochure for a furniture restorer - died in the making... which is a real shame. I loved how it was coming along, and I respected the heck out of Marco and his amazing craftsmanship. The shop in Queens was a wonderland of tools and in-progress work. Marco is still … Continue reading An unfinished restoration
MoMath opened a new exhibit this morning - the idea of which is to enter the parameters of a basketball shot into a ball-throwing robot and allows you to try your hand at trying to replicate the shot yourself at a basket placed next to the bot's. A computer analyses both shots - allowing you … Continue reading A little one-on-bot half court
MoMath likes to celebrate the solstices with math-related events in the plaza just north of the Flatiron Building. This year I was tasked with designing a sundial (along with our Chief Educator and Associate Director as technical consultants) wherein a person would stand as the gnomon and cast a shadow telling the time of day. … Continue reading Summer in the city
Here are a few desktop wallpapers I made when I got my fourth computer. I figured I'd make them free to use for anyone who enjoys the numeral "4". If you like and use them, please comment or drop me a line via the "email" link to the right of the page. Thanks!
MoMath has an upcoming games night (mostly board games with mathematical credibility) and needed a logo for web and other promotional materials. The pivot point on the Q was a play on the name of the event, with the playing piece balancing out the design.
The designs below were created for an exhibit at the National Museum of Mathematics called "Robot Swarm," which explores the algorithms that describe the swarming behavior of animals such as birds and insect. A video and article appearing on The Verge regarding the exhibit appears here. These were concept designs for the logo. I'd originally … Continue reading Swarms of Robots
