First class

Today was not, technically speaking, the first day of class. My semester started last week, but I was in Dublin, so I needed to give my introductory lecture remotely.

But today was the first real class, the one where we dove in deep and explored the wonderful connection between mathematics and imagery, inventing on the fly to spin equations into animations.

There is something completely joyous about computer graphics, with its unique flavor of rational thought impelled by a search for beauty. There are few other endeavors that encompass so many different ways of thinking, all at the same time.

Learning this field is a privilege, a kind of sacred knowledge. It feels wonderful to pass that knowledge on to a new generation of fellow seekers.
