012: AI and I

Somewhat recovered from the sudden onset of Doctorhood at the end of last year and the associated rush of productivity (photographically speaking) that comes with intense procrastination, I'm taking a brief moment to pause and think about my upcoming adventures in bubble and photo, both will involve a smattering of artificial intelligence. Machine learning has… Continue reading 012: AI and I

010: Bubble Trouble

4 years ago, I started my PhD work on bubbles. 3 papers, 1  video and hundreds of hours of experimenting in the kitchen later, I have decided to put together a photobook of 25 awesome bubble images from my project.

A recent remake of this classic in M-mount can be bought brand new at an… Continue reading 004: Retro Futurism

002: 海纳百川

This set of 3 monochroms showcases some of my uncle's recent calligraphic work. The first phrase from the initial picture is the proverb "海纳百川", which literally means "water containing hundred lakes" and literarily describes something of epic proportions.
