While not quite finished all of their term projects, I heartily enjoyed and appreciated the insightful artist talks each of my grad students did in our extended, beyond-the-end-of-the-term class. I presented a model of what I wanted to hear last week and this week they each told me about themselves, about their work, about their problems, and about their solutions and futures. Afterwards we went to the club for lunch. Disappointed that there was no buffet (I was very hungry), but the food is always good. Around the table is An An, Xin Shen, Zaheer Shahid, and Rania Al Harthi.
