Every morning I sneak into my wife’s studio, catching a glimpse of what she’s been up to. And every morning, I’m amazed by her sheer talent, artistry and her ability to conjure beauty onto a blank sheet of paper. I spend my days in a world of truth, mainly of the quantitative kind. And it’s beautiful. Sometimes it’s a slightly complex kind of beauty and it takes some explanation to point out why and how a well put together convolutional neural network is a kind of beauty. But in the morning, when I see my wife’s gorgeous work, I understand once again that we are all in pursuit of the same idea of beauty but through different avenues. You can see more of Katie’s art on http://www.kisroka.com. The character in the illustration is Eleven, from the Netflix show Stranger Things, which we both loved to death.
