|I am in the Aesthetics & Computation Group at the MIT Media Lab for two reasons: to learn, and to create (and to learn by creating.)
My fours years as a Electrical Engineering & Computer Science major and Math minor have provided me with more knowledge than I may ever need to know about computation. Unfortunately, I was unable to invest much time in studying my two other interests, design and education. In the next two years, I plan to learn as much as possible in these two broad fields, and how they relate to each other as well as to math and computer science.
Using the knowledge from these four fields, I plan to create examples of computation design which attempt to explain mathematical concepts with greater clarity than traditional media. I also look forward to designing a virtual easel which will allow the creator to program and see the results in the same environment. Ultimately, I would like to formulate a visual language for computational design which will collapse the conceptual space between code, compilation and executable.
