Interview about “Geometry Daily” on the Day of Mathematics Istanbul

It was pleasure to talk to Sarper Yurtseven at the Day of Mathematics Istanbul this morning! We talked about my Geometry Daily graphics, my process, inspirations and – or course – geometry. The 45 minutes were recorded and are available on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHp5UOlms-4

Sarper tried to recreate one of my graphics with generative AI. The results are super interesting and surprisingly three-dimensional: youtu.be/MHp5UOlms-4?list=PL7DHNy6n7rOjTTkRtrxbOL7OAVRk4_59O&t=2971*

It’s streaming live, so tune in on 11.00 CET: youtube.com/MatematikTurkiye *I don’t know if there will be a recording afterwards. Unfortunately the rest of the online event is in Turkish.

Dan Klammer did a lot of research, which fonts are common on all the modern operation systems, and came up with modernfontstacks.com*. Incredibly useful resource for web design. The little info icons lead to explanations and visualisations of each typeface class. This is even more interesting, although it also reveals that the available fonts on the individual OSs are much more different than one would hope.


What you are looking at is my personal website, which I keep going since 1999, over many iterations. It was portfolio, then a blog, then a one pager, but always my personal playground on the web. And just this moment I flipped another switch! Now it is driven by a new social microblogging engine Max and I are working on right now. That software is so new, it does not have a proper name yet. Let’s see where this is going …

Sebastian Abboud is my favourite graphic artist at the moment. So playfully happy, slightly retro and slightly weird. www.instagram.com/p/CnhsfELvojn*
