A labyrinthine man never seeks the truth, only his Ariadne.

I am a Venezuelan – Hungarian (more the former than the latter) scientist and artist. Live and work in Vienna.

Been around the world, but the world does not impresses me as much as the mind and its creativity does.

A labyrinthine man never seeks the truth, but only his Ariadne

is a passage by Roland Barthes [1], quoting Nietzche.

Besides my scientific research and my artworks, I like exploring the intersection between science&art, and thinking on its meaning. This is what this blog is about [2].

Some people wonder about the name, Al Teleki. It is derived from: Sándor, which is Hungarian of Alexander, therefore Al. Teleki is a Hungarian/Transilvanian surname [3].
