"He is actually more about providing a kind of liberation of thinking; we can try anything…" (“他其实更多的是提供一种思维的解放，我们什么都可以去尝试")—Jia Guoping (贾国平, Central Conservatory of Music, Beijing)
Being a pluralist, I encourage us all to study across cultures, methods, and time periods, with open minds. This journey has taken me so far from Renaissance Italy to Modern China and India and then back to New York, New York, where I’m keen to apply the traditional liberal arts to make an impact in tech and economics (if not also policy). If you haven’t dropped what you’ve been doing in your own art or teaching studio to, say, test your mind at an AI hackathon or something totally different in this day and age, then I’d say give it a try! I look forward to crossing paths with you on CommonTime wherever and whenever, however I can help you along the way.
