Wow. What a conundrum. I advice you to give the whole thing up, drink a lot of beer and melt the bottles in the kiln. But that's me. I'm practical.

It might be quicker (and easier) for me to start taking hallucinogenic drugs :-)

So there you go Max. Translucent tiles for your mosaic, LED backlighting controlled by an FPGA or two and yours too can be like that?

Nice idea, but he painted it while in an asylum in St. Remy in the south of France on the coast of the Mediterranean. too far south to see the aurora.

This is a fine place to discuss fine art! To me, it represents wind. I can feel it swaying that tall pine tree. Do whatever you want with your loins, Max, but you don't need to pull up your shorts. Au natural is a better way to make art.

I think it represents what Vincent actually saw. Don't forget that he was mentally ill. And many people with certain kinds of mental illness report that they sometimes see the world in this "swirly" fashion.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
