"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"I was very bad in mathematics when I was a high-school student. I found that I was a visual person. I had to confirm everything by eye, not by abstract thinking. Once a mathematical theory got abstract, my eyes couldn’t visualize it. So I just gave up trying to understand perfectly. I could sense with my brain, 'Maybe this functions...,' but I just felt uncomfortable not having confirmed it with my visual understanding. So I became more like a visual artist, not an abstract thinker. Now, I again encounter that my way of understanding mathematics is purely visual."
