TV cheat sheet: a design exercise
July 5, 2010

After some recent back-and-forth with Comcast, I upgraded my TV subscription and with it came a raft of new channels with numbers far higher than I ever imagined as a kid.

Cubescape
May 13, 2008

Cubescape, the latest experiment by Cameron Adams is a fun and fascinating art project that allows people to create sculptures out of cubes. Considering my own obsession with cubes, I instantly fell in love with it and made a Level 2 Menger Sponge.
