Describe your experience with each of the following:
- making art
Arts and crafts growing up in kindergarten, pre-school, grade school and college here at the University. I love drawing/doodling in my spare time. I'm fascinated by band's myspace layouts.
- using a computer
My dad is an engineer dealing pretty heavily with computers, so I grew up learning quite a bit on computers. I learned DOS on windows way back in the day. Eventually I progressed to windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista. I also used Macintosh computers at school growing up and now I use a MacBook Pro with OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard). I grew up being fascinated with computers and what they could do, create and manipulate.
- using hand tools and power tools
Pretty average knowledge of all things tool related. Industrial Tech in Junior High and High School helped expand my horizon a little bit. I help my dad with random tasks here and there. I was a janitor at my old high school this past summer, so I furthered my knowledge.
- using a sewing machine
7th an 8th Grade Life Skills class. That's really about it.
- using a laser cutter and other computer controlled machines
Not a whole lot comes to mind right away.
One of my roommates is studying Computer Science. So I have a very rudimentary knowledge of that. I have taken a few Web design classes dealing with HTML and things of that nature.
- working with electronics
As I said, my dad is pretty big on technology and computers and electronics and things so I have a pretty extensive knowledge of quite a few things. Computers, iPods, audio recording software, audio mixing boards, etc.
Very few instances growing up with my father. One of my roommates took an engineering related class involving soldering some things.
- installation art
Not entirely sure what that encompasses.
- interactive art
Mostly just what I've seen in museums and art galleries around the cities.
I've taken a pretty big interest in video and video editing, so I've experimented with various video editing programs. I have a JVC camcorder...
- sound art
I took the 1601 Interactivity class, where we dealt with sound art and recording various sounds and editing/manipulating them.
My family owns a few digital cameras, I have an aunt that works with high resolution photography and painting for a living. Other than that, cellphone camera use. Still function on camcorder. But I'm strongly interested in doing more photographic work.
Making clay sculptures in high school...
- electronic music
I use audio recording software to create and record my own music in my spare time. I have a few MIDI programs and drum machine programs that can be used for creating music. I listen to music on a daily basis and pretty heavily.
I grew up loving to draw. Mainly with pencil and paper. I've taken high school art classes dealing with drawing and I enjoyed them. I took the Intro Drawing class at the U here and enjoyed that as well.
- I forgot to mention that I ...
Enjoy skateboarding and football.
Enjoy eating just about all kinds of food.
