Both. I'm formally trained in mathematical physics, but my aspirations are more aesthetic rather than empirical.
I'm interested in category theory, which can be seen as an concrete embodiment of the idea of 'Structuralism' in mathematics, it is also a sophisticated entanglement and a brave new world of logic, geometry & set theory. Its logic is intuitionistic rather than classical, and there are claims it can serve as a more intuitive foundation for mathematics reflecting much more clearly the ways that mathematicans think than the more respectable set theory.
I don't have any definite ideas here: Punk or dada mathematics? I want to explore a different aesthetic mind-set. Mathematics very much - if not solely, operates in the world of appollonian aesthetics, and I want to be thinking more along the lines of paintings of Francis Bacon, or Daniel Richter.
