“I don’t buy the idea that artistic/creative and rational/analytical parts of the mind are segregated to different hemispheres of the brain and that they are exclusive traits or tendencies. To me creating a work of art is not at all different from building software. Each relies on a balance of intuition and careful consideration of the relationship of parts to a whole. Beauty, emotion and logic are all connected.”
