Miguel has been developing his work as a professional illustrator since 2010, regularly contributing with press and other fields of illustration such as publishing, independent projects and publicity. He conceives illustration as a means of communication, a form of dialogue with the observer. Miguel gives his opinion and invites the observer to be submerged into the image, to reflect on it and to come to his or her own conclusions. He considers the conceptual value as the essence of the image. Therefore, he goes for simple and synthetic graphics in order to transmit the concept as efficiently as possible.

The solution was to incorporate them as volume in the walls. To convey the value of internationalization, we created a volumetric map, including Plexiglas hexagons, to mark the home cities of the members in attendance at the meeting.”

Jane Austen, Game Theorist? Ha

Claiming famous artists operated under the auspices of modern scientific thought ignores what art is all about.

“Art does not have winners.” This is the argument William Deresiewicz makes as he skewers political scientist Michael Suk-Young Chwe’s latest book, Jane Austen, Game Theorist in The New Republic. In the vein of Jonah Lehrer’s Proust Was a Neuroscientist, Chwe’s book stakes a claim that Jane Austen, the 19th-century novelist who brought us Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Emma, was a pioneer in exploring the 20th-century mathematical concept of game theory, the study of the way people make decisions.
