Ethan Hulbert's abstract metal art prints: Perplexia.Art!

I launched my art portfolio gallery: Perplexia Art!

This has been a long time coming. Some of these pieces are over ten years old. But I finally, finally put them all together, with full descriptions, captions, links, citations, poetry, and everything!

I give you: Perplexia.Art!

137 pieces of visual art, spread among three galleries. 137!!!

The three galleries are…

Abstract:

The Perplexia abstract gallery.

 

Glitch:

The Perplexia Glitch and poetry gallery.

 

And Test (Experimental):

The Perplexia Test Experimental art gallery.

 

Plus, each glitch piece has a corresponding poem, totaling 54 works of poetry total.

Even the image in the header on this website comes from my abstract collection – it’s from a piece called Phantom Infrastructure.

I hope you like my art, but either way, I love it all and I’m super proud of it!

The American Mathematical Society goes into even more detail.

Finally I found this incredible advanced article on animated QR codes that really blew my mind. Wow.

An animated smiley face QR code that links to the word Awesome.

Just wanted to keep track of these links for later!

I tried Banana Dang Extinguisher coffee

The funny thing is, this is probably the last coffee I would’ve picked up for myself, because I am aggressively impartial about bananas. I don’t hate them, but I mean, why would you ever eat a banana when you could have any other fruit?

A banana is no rambutan, that’s for damn sure.

But Alex got me this bag of Banana Dang “Extinguisher” coffee as a gift, and the folks at my nearby local downtown LA coffee shop were nice enough to grind it for me.
