Mathematics. That word was once a source of what my good friend Christopher calls ‘math anxiety’. Growing up I believed that math was a living being and for some reason that vast and terrible creature had a very personal problem with me. I had no clue what I had done, but it must have been unforgivable.

So, to now find my self in love with all things mathematics is quite a trip. I have always been an artist and I thought of art and math as being on the opposite side of a spectrum. I now see math as the art at the heart of everything.

Math is truth and beauty. It is art and magic. math is incorruptible. The only limitations on what you can learn and do with math are those which you set for yourself. Math cannot be taken from you. Oppressors cannot control it.

whoever you are, you can empower yourself through mathematics.

The Social mathematics Experiment is a beautiful oasis in a dessert of corruption and hypocrisy. I am grateful and proud to be a part of it.
