Nice to meet you! My name is Gueorgui, and I'm a photographer, designer, and engineer living and working in London, UK after living in Russia, France, Germany, and Japan.
In my work life, I'm running a tiny creative studio called A Possible Space (https://a.possible.space) together with my wife.
I'm interested in the intersections of art, tech, society, and in working for an ethical, sustainable future.
Finally, spring. It feels like we are slowly starting to come out of the long winter — the sun is out more often, and that glum London chill is starting to slowly lift. Something inside is stirring and shifting as well, reaching towards the warmth, more willing to take risks, be vulnerable, and ask for help.
After what feels like a lifetime of winter — with a whole lot of love, struggle, support, and hard work — finally, spring.
I'm really struggling to organise my time to work on projects these days (SwiftUI and Chinese).
I've been working on them after work before but that wasn't sustainable as I tend to be tired in the evenings and want to have more energy for family things.
Now I started trying to wake up early (~6am), but I often fail to go to bed early enough, and to wake up early enough, and so only manage about one productive hour or so, while I need at least two.
Carried a full grocery load, two pizzas, and a little dessert bag today. Continuing being amazed by this machine. @Tingyi 🚲
I have found the meme that resonates with me the most completely, via @acb on Twitter. I am speechless.
This book is so nicely printed on the inside, and the paper looks/feels great, but then the cover is just so ugly. What to do about it? #theChessBoard
(I'll post the/a solution tomorrow)
Here's a puzzle from the book I'm working my way through, "Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess". White just moved their Queen to F7. The only way for Black to escape a mate is to move their King away to H8 (trust me on this). Can you find the combination of moves that'd accomplish this?
Art × Tech. Running a tiny creative studio in London. Really into #chess these days.

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
