"Music inspires me. When I’m sitting, counting, and measuring, and thinking about clutter and emptiness, I might be thinking of sound and silence. So the structure of music is an inspiration for me in an abstract way. And the mathematics and emotion of music together are a really good way to talk about how I think about my work."
