The world lost one of its creative geniuses today. My friend JT Nimoy, who introduced me to an amazing world including ITP – NYU at NYU Tisch School of the Arts has passed in SFO. When I was still learning the ropes of being at the intersection of aesthetics and computation, she sent one of her masterpieces – the world’s smallest Pong arcade game – from NYC to MNL so Filipinos can learn from it at the Ateneo Art Gallery. She was immensely proud of her Filipino heritage. Pinoys will be very proud to know that a number of the major visual effects and true to life interfaces in Tron Legacy were done by her from scratch. She’d hit me up more than a decade later to meet as she was doing a quick transit in Manila. Although she was severely jetlagged, we talked for hours. Some time later, I’d have the honor of being one of the first people she’d message about having come out as a transwoman. More than the giant that she was, she truly, deeply cared, with an even bigger heart. Maybe when we meet again, you can tell me if heaven is electric.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
