Artists tools and venues, our options for delineating ideas, have risen significantly.
There are few techniques which have escaped our repertoire of instruments.
Surely psychoanalysis, cinematography, engineering,
and architecture have become acceptable modes of discourse.
Presently we witness incredible works pertaining to the fields of software engineering,
bio-engineering, and the social sciences.
Knowledge and technique and their application are not the aim. Rather discovery, invention
and most importantly the search for the proper questions. I like to consider a
sentence Joseph Albers wrote: "There is no final solution in form, it demands unending
performance and invites constant reconsideration."
The work must resonate and function within the realm of these technical phenomenon.
This relationship is twofold: At one time I am aroused by the classic,
the chiaroscuro of traditional painting, the immediate tendency of brush against canvas;
Another moment is the cerebral stimulation found in the cognitive and
computer sciences. Specifically algorithm design and research is applied towards pattern recognition and statistical processes.
This tendency for the artist and the technician to coincide is not new.
It runs through our shared memories. It is inherent everywhere. As much in the invention of perspective/development
of painting, as it is in the application of computers towards creative endeavors.
These developments do not surprise our curiosity. However they do offer an opportunity to come closer to the
muse we have all come to admire and pursue.

There are a number of working papers reflecting some of my more recent research interests:
My current thinking on a video compression algorithm optimized for talking heads.
Some production tools I developed for automating lips for animation.
An interesting drawing tool, in development of course, which I believe will be the new paradigm for drawing tools
that will eventually replace the current rather bleak landscape of Adobe dominated tools.
