Note / MvW: ‘In high school I struggled with mathematics. I simply did not get it at all and I failed my final exam. Despite this misery, and it was misery, I can be grateful to mathematics since there is one concept from that class that I still remember: the subset. Imagine two circles crossing with a shared space in the middle that can be small or quite large. This area of overlap is what you call the subset. Recently, to my delight I saw this concept in action on the street. It was right outside my house. I ran out with my camera and the wind did the rest.’
