The BrachistochroneThis animation is about one of the most significant problems in the history of mathematics: The Brachistochrone Challenge:If a ball is to roll down a ramp which connects two points, what must be the shape of the ramp’s curve be, such that the descent time is a minimum?Intuition says that it should be a straight line. That would minimize the distance, but the minimum time happens when the ramp curve is the one shown: a cycloid.Johann Bernoulli posed the problem to the mathematicians of Europe in 1696, and ultimately, several found the solution. However, a new branch of mathematics,Calculus of Variations, had to be invented to deal with such problems. Today, calculus of variations is vital in Quantum Mechanics and other fields.

 ’Mukashi Mukashi’ & ‘A New Tenant’

I was asked to contribute to the Heroes in A Half Shell: A TMNT Tribute Exhibition for Gallery Nucleus, which will be opening this Saturday.

I thought it would be fun to show Splinter and crew with Shredder’s vanquished helmet, only kicking it back to the feudal age of Japan it’s based off of. No mutations and a samurai helmet.

I grew up with the 90’s TMNT and finding out that the new Krang was no longer the campy robot kangaroo pouch with alien brain baby left me nostalgic. It felt like Krang had left his out dated model back in ‘87 for a shiny new ride, and I couldn’t help thinking it’s probably still sitting around somewhere collecting dust, overgrown with plants.

I took this photo in Shanghai in February, and although I didn’t try the food, I thought the of the restaurant was a great pun on 乐不思蜀.
The 乐 in the original chengyu is replaced by 辣, meaning spicy - fitting because Sichuan province is modern day Shu Han 蜀汉, famous for hot food, and the home of 麻辣烫, which the restaurant serves.
So I guess the name could be translated as “So spicy you forget about Sichuan” suggesting it is a great place to go for people from the Sichuan region who are missing spicy food in Shanghai.

I’m so excited to go to China in September!  First time in 6 years, and first time to Sichuan!
