Third visit to Peter Struycken

I visited Peter Struycken. Besides talking about all kinds of things, we also went throught the list of his works on the page I have made and reordered the works before 1969 based on his recollections about which works were made in the same periode. We also discovered that there are still some early works missing when we looked at some pictures that were taken during the openings of some early exhibitions. I also returned the part of his personal archive that I took with me last October and took some new part home.

For the love of Physics

At 12:51:48, I bought the book For the love of Physics by Walter Lewin, ISBN:9781451607130, from bookshop Broekhuis for € 9.95 (second hand). Chapter 15 of the book, with the title Ways of Seeing talks about his friendship with Peter Struycken. Walter Lewin helped Peter Struycken by making some suggestions for mathematical formuleas that he could use for his computer art works. Many of his art works are based on these suggestions.

Impatiens glandulifera

Yesterday, I noticed some special flowers along the road, and I took the close-up picture on the right. I thought I had found some orchid, but when at home I tried to determine it, I could not find me. This morning, I asked some colleagues if they had some idea. One of them thought it was an impatiens. After some searching, I concluded that it might be an impatiens glandulifera. Someone on twitter affirmed this.
