    “After 20 years of living and working in the middle of Berlin, my little family and I have moved into a magic old house. It is located between the historic Berlin film studios and the endless lakes of Potsdam. You can hardly imagine a more peaceful, historic, and beautiful place. The wall behind my desk in my studio on the first floor is full of all kinds of pieces that I love. There is a rare old John Lennon and Yoko Ono ‘War is Over’ poster, a drawing of the late Tibor Kalman by the wonderful Maira Kalman, a picture of Steve McQueen in a frame that actually once hung in his own Santa Paula ranch, some old Suzuki Motorcycle patches, etc. It is not a big place, much smaller than my old studio, but I love it.


     

    I was never good at math, but I have to admit that the key to so many things in life lies in understanding its hidden code, its inner logic. I think, rather than a book about math, this is a book about symmetry, about size and about limitlessness.”
