I'm back. I'm back. I'm back!

There's a lot of exciting things happening with Mis Tribus and for me personally.  I've wanted to start sharing more, but most of belongs on X-cito.com, but my WordPress installation is fried.

Anyway, were to start.  Well the most exciting stuff right now is my research on Victor Vasarely, hyperbolic geometry, and M.C. Escher.  One of my all time favorites. Right up there with Picasso and Dali.

I'm currently challenged on how to reproduce some of the images by Vasarely or Escher in Microsoft Visio. Known as a strong technical drawing program, I believe that it has the flexibility to help me learn hyperbolic geometry.  It think it will be extremely helpful in figuring out how to build pleasing, or not, programs based on live video camera feeds.

In this sense, programs are not computer programs, but artistic programs based on Vasarely's Planetary Foklore and plastic alphabet.

Here's a piece I did with MS Photodraw.  I call it "Planetary Chicken Folklore no366", enjoy:
