If you’re going to get anywhere in learning mathematics, you need to learn to be comfortable not understanding something… The truth is that mathematicians are chronically lost and confused. It’s our natural state of being, and I mean that in a good way.

What does it mean to be a photographer when three billion people are walking around with phones in their pocket with cameras on them? What does it mean to be a professional writer when every 14 year old has a blog?

Pure Peru from Ruben Panagopoulos on Vimeo.

Huacachina - Lima - Huaraz - Mancora
During the last weeks of my 2013 travels through Peru I visited the above mentioned locations. Sandboarding in the desert around the lagoon of Huacachina and sitting in the sandbuggy was amazing. I enjoyed an incredible dinner at the La Mar restaurant in Lima and the mountain scenery of Huaraz is something extraordinary. It all ended with spending a couple of days in Mancora, the beach hotspot in Northern Peru.
It all came down to experiencing, as what I think is: ‘Pure Peru’.

BIG THANKS FOR ALL THE LIKES, COMMENTS AND ENCOURAGEMENT.

Ever since the 1500s, and for hundreds of years after, the only people who used @ were bookkeepers, who used it as a shorthand to show how much they were selling or buying goods for: for example, “3 bottles of wine @ $10 each.”

Since these bookkeepers used @ to deal with money, a certain degree of whimsical fondness for the character developed over time. In Danish, the symbol is known as an “elephant’s trunk a”; the French call it an escargot. It’s a streudel in German, a monkey’s tail in Dutch, and a rose in Istanbul. In Italian, it’s named after a huge amphora of wine, a liquid some Italian bookkeepers have been known to show a fondness for.

Even with such cute names to recommend it, though, @ languished in obscurity for three and a half centuries, only ending up on a new invention called the typewriter when salesmen realized that accountants and bookkeepers were buying them in droves.

In 1971, however, a keyboard with a vestigial @ symbol inherited from its typewriter ancestors found itself hooked up to an ARPANET terminal manned by Ray Tomlinson, who was working on a little program he’d come up with in his goofing-off time to send messages from computer to computer. Tomlinson ended up using the @ symbol as the fulcrum of the lever that ultimately ended up lifting the world into the digital age: email.

Soo Sunny Park: Unwoven Light from Walley Films on Vimeo.

Soo Sunny Park’s installation Unwoven Light animates Rice Gallery’s expansive space, transforming it into a shimmering world of light, shadow, and brilliant color. Suspended from the walls and ceiling, thirty-seven individually sculpted units are arranged as a graceful, twisting flow of abstract form. On view April 11 - August 30, 2013. Original score by Mark Walley. Learn more about the exhibition at RiceGallery.org. Learn more about the filmmakers at WalleyFilms.com.
