The first light-field camera array I saw at Stanford had a bunch of applications, like to do special effects like you see in ‘The Matrix,’ where you spin the camera around in frozen motion. It took up an entire room.

Elon Musk wins you over with his elegant mastery of engineering, be it for the rocket or the car. But what blew my socks off was when our conversation veered way off topic. We started musing about whether it was possible we all lived in the matrix, and Musk still had deep knowledge.

Joseph Bologna
We found in ‘The Matrix’ that people were willing to accept something more. It was a smarter film.
If you ask someone if they like music, they look at you strangely. It seems to be a universal given. Like asking someone if they like breathing. It is like breathing. Or air, rather. Flowing without and within. A matrix within which our lives are set. The setting for the tableware of our beings.
I would love to play the Femme Fatale or an action role like Trinity in the Matrix or something like that. You know, a part with a lot of costume changes.

If you think about ‘The Matrix’ and how high-concept it was, it had these incredible ideas that really penetrated people’s consciousness. It really was a film of awakening. I think a lot of people woke up around that film.

I’m an agnostic in the truest sense of the word.

The more I use a matrix, the easier I make it to blame someone else.

NI love watching science fiction because I feel like when it’s done well, it’s not just monsters, but philosophy. Really good science fiction like, ‘2001,’ for example, or the first ‘Matrix.’ But it takes someone who’s got a brain and thinks in order to do really good science fiction.
Timbaland was crazy to work with. When he stepped in the studio, it was like working with Morpheus from ‘The Matrix’ – he stepped in with three beats and said, ‘Pick one.’ They all sounded crazy, but I could only pick one. I picked one and he hooked me up.
I can’t say I’m a full-on gamer, since, basically, I just don’t have time for it. I know nowadays, gaming can be a lot like social media. People just stay on it all day long. Like they’re logged into the Matrix. But yeah, I enjoy it. When I get the time.
I make out a play list for every character and buy the records they would listen to; it helps me find their personas. What they play, where they stay, who they lay, is my matrix for character development.
