I was born in New York City and attended the School of Visual Arts there.
My fascination with the relationship between art and science coupled with my need to escape the linear mentality of western art – which has its counterpart in the equationistic relativity of Einstein -- drove me to explore another approach, namely, a nonlinear, algorithmic one influenced by the science of Henri Poincaré, Benoit Mandelbrot and Kurt Gödel.
This approach set me on a new course of artistic action – one moved by an algorithmic understanding; this understanding frees me to explore whole other artistic concepts and directions and led me to create the ‘maps of approximation’ which are being presented in the Florence Biennale in 2005.
