M.C. Escher was...
M.C. Escher was a bit of an enigma. He was an artist whose works had a technical precision, a visionary with quantitative methods. M.C. Escher embodied art + math.
My name is Morgan Randall. Math: I'm a person who loves to learn. I like solving hard problems, which led me to graduate with a degree in mathematics at UC Berkeley. There, I enjoyed the labyrinth of theorems that is Complex Analysis and the philosophical curiosity of Set Theory. Today, that curiosity carries me in my work in data science.
Art: I'm also a big fan of showing rather than telling. I've been drawing since I was around ten-years-old, and I like expressing complex ideas in visual forms. You can get so much across with only pictures. I usually draw with pencil and pen, but have come to love Copic markers, and even break into using a Wacom drawing tablet to really dive into the unique color space that digital work provides.
I'm constantly diving deep, geeking out about new things. I love doing work across disciplines and infusing my art skills into projects.
And yes, I do draw with both hands at the same time. You might have seen me drawing at an airport, or maybe we met on a train, or maybe I drew you while volunteering at a local hospital. Still have questions? Read Free Malaysia Today's 2022 interview with me here.
Nerding out to an audience about infinity.
Gravitation, by M.C. Escher
Drawing with Two Hands:
Kamu duduk lagi di Malaysia?
Tidak! Aku sudah balik jerman.
After working in Malaysia as a Technical Project Manager for three years, I've returned to working in Germany in 2023.
