About Samuel Mignot: abstractly and concretely:
I don't like writing about myself: even a little third person trickery doesn't make the process comfortable for me.
Though, I must like writing about myself because I enjoy writing, which is, inevitably, a distilling and sieving of the self through words.
Perhaps what I like is writing about myself by proxy: letting the books, movies, music, art that I love cast shadows of me on the wall.
This idea rationalizes both the creation of my blog and the methodology that I want to apply to it:
I don't want to pretend that my reviews and thoughts are directly about the topic of a post. I want to affirm and declaim the beauty of that which bounces around and mixes inside us, which is, after all, where art comes alive.
I am a writer and a programmer. After graduating from Stanford in 2019 with degrees in Computer Science and English, I moved to Paris. I'm fascinated by all things art and cautiously intrigued by most things tech.
Here are some of the projects I am currently working on:
