a few comments on specific RECords:
A Mathematician's Approach to Love - by far the RECord I'm most proud of. my first attempt at writing a short story in a long time, I put a lot of love into this story (no pun intended) and I really, really, really do hope you enjoy it.
REsurrection Tree - if someone had to see just one RECord from me, I think this would be it - not because of the visual composition, but because of the message behind it (see the tiny story after the image). I hope it inspires you like it has inspired me.
Applied Mathematics - I really like this tiny story, I must say :) and this is coming from someone who very rarely likes ANYTHING she does.
the golden ratio - this tiny story is basically about me... it keeps me going when life gets tough. I hope you all know that your lives are golden too! but if you ever need someone to remind you, let me know. <3
invincibility cloaks - there's a lot of truth in this tiny story. one of the things I love about HR is that I can reveal so much of myself to you and know no one will judge me for it. so thank you for giving me that. :)
the hitREfractal - possibly the nerdiest thing you can and will ever see... a RECord is a method of REpetition!
People are put into the ground when they die.
Seeds are put into the ground to be born again.
^ the tiny story I wrote earlier
I had this idea that when the heart stops beating, it is planted into the ground like a seed to bring forth more life even after death. Let's keep our loved ones alive, again by heart -- RECord, RECord, RECord. <3
Matthew used to think love was as easy as 3.14159, but Linda was rapidly proving him wrong. He loved Linda, sure, just like he loved his dog Einstein, but he loved mathematics the most. Linda ...

things spiraled rapidly out of control, but she liked to think they did so in accordance with φ(phi). it was a small comfort, but it was enough, for it left her feeling that her life, even as it w...
The Tyrannosaurus Rex, lovingly nicknamed "T-Rex," or "Big T" by his dino-peers, was a dinosaur found as early as 67 million years ago. Unlike popular culture today is so quick to suggest, the Tyr...
"You're too complex," said Pi.
"Don't be irrational," said i.
"Come on guys, be positive!" said 22/7.
"Oh look," said i grumpily, "the voice of reason."
"I'm high," said the kite.
"I'm stoned," said the rock.
"I'm baked," said the cookie.
"I'm buzzed," said the bee.
"I'm plastered," said the glue.

it's said that in relative comparison to the lifespan of the universe, i am but a blink of just one of its many eyes.
furthermore, i've reason to believe that in the grand scale of t...
a noonday in the sun, made entirely out of paper and fabric i scanned (and a pd light image). look out for the longray, midlight, and gloam versions, coming soon to a RECord near you (may take a few days since i need to alter the sun/sky accordingly...)! after i finish, i will upload the .PSD files so that someone can animate them into a little film. any takers? : )
I'm an artist, in that I write elaborate love notes to the universe in pencil -- traditionally, they're called mathematical proofs, or solutions to problems, but to me they mean far more than that. I'm an aspiring mathematician, and some might say that I'm the opposite of an artist, that math and art are mutually exclusive. I think they're very much mistaken, for mathematicians and artists share a common desire to create and unveil something beautiful.
Society tells me many things. It tells me I'm setting myself up for failure, that just a love for math won't get me anywhere. It tells me I should have been a doctor or an engineer. But it also tells me other things, like that I need to be thin and beautiful in order to be happy. Once upon a time, I believed everything society told me to do was right, and I don't think I've ever felt so miserable. I'm not going to do what is expected of me. You can expect all you want, but this life is my own to control.
I dream of doing great things (but don't we all?). I dream of making people happy. I dream of putting smiles on the faces of anyone and everyone I meet. I dream of loving and living with all of my heart. And sometimes… I dream of being loved back.
