John Sims is my old lab/office partner from college. He's one of the finest mathematicians I've ever had leave me in the theoretical dust, only to catch me up right after. For the last several years, he's been making art.

Some of it is very specificaly political and controversial, such as "The Proper Way To Hang A Confederate Flag" and the Recolorization project. Some of it is more theoretical in it's explorations, such as "The Square Root Of A Tree." He's currently showing a series of quilts (and Jazz) based on Pi here in NYC. Alas, I didn't learn of this until this week, and this is the closing week.

If you've got some time, hie thee down to 2nd St between Ave B & C. There's only the one art gallery there, on the south side of the street, and check it out. I'd give you the name of the place, but in my excitement at seeing John after 22 years, I neglected to get the name of the place.
