(Note from Nova Spivack, son of Mayer Spivack)
The author of this blog, Mayer Spivack, passed away on February 12, 2011, after a year and a half battle with cancer. Throughout it all he maintained his curiosity, humor, compassion, and dedication to innovation - in fact, these facets of his personality only got stronger as he got closer to his transition. I encourage you to explore the directory of topics here to get a sense of the scope of his incredible intellect. I hope that his theories and observations about the mind, design, art and science will reach a wider audience. Also don't miss his photos - this is only a tiny sampling of the thousands of photos and hundreds of sculptures he produced, many of which we will hopefully be able to show you here in the future. In the meantime, thank you for visiting and for your comments and thoughts about my father's thinking.
