Here are some ideas I am exploring.
Disruption in science
Almost all new ideas receive some kind of hostility; occasionally, big new ideas in science can be ignored for decades. What if it happened today? What if it was the most important discovery of our time? My book on Randell Mills introduces a wide audience to a new theory of nature.
The future of architecture
America is far behind Europe in building technology. How do we catch up? How do we leap ahead? If we innovate at every level - in structure and materials, fabrication and deployment, integration of systems, new technologies and sustainability - will a distinctive new form or style emerge? This is the focus of my practice.
The atelier art movement
Painters and sculptors are coming back. Ateliers and academies are churning out brilliant new artists. The portrait, the nude, the landscape, the still life - historical forms that are becoming contemporary through technical innovations and modern vision. How can I be the agent for an entire community of practitioners?
At the center of all religion is the prophet who is a powerless man who becomes a powerful legend. How do we paint a historical person with a brush that conveys the extraordinary personality in an empathetic light but is unforgiving on the nature of reality? How do we rewrite myth?
A six-year old goes on a road trip in an autonomous vehicle and makes a friend.
They fall in love, break up, and find each other again. The story plays out four different ways as their decisions impact the course of their lives.
He dies, and finds that he has a choice to "end" or "continue." When will he decide to end?
The future, present, and past, surrounding a brilliant thinker.
