In real life I am a graduate student in neurobiology currently at the university of Freiburg. Yes, I am a scientist and I am proud of it.
But as Goethe's Dr Faust already declared: "Two souls alas! are dwelling in my breast."
I do love the mathematical neatness, the wonders of neurons that fire action potentials bringing us to think, feel, dream... But just as well I enjoy letting myself be drowned in the imaginitive pell-mell process of fabricating artwork without questioning its scholary value all the more treasuring its intangible appeal to human kind.
