Fab Lab Facilitator IIIMuseum of Science & Industry
Scientific Influences Loved science and art as a kid (sports too). John Audubon and George Washington Carver are my favorite scientist-artists.
More Modern Influences Marlin Perkins (zoology), Jacques Cousteau (oceanography), and Carl Sagan (cosmology) were my favorite modern day scientists because they actually taught me science on T.V.
Techy Things, Career Etc.I actually went to Tuskegee University where Dr. Carver builtthe school’s scientific reputation. (Did you know he andEinstein were pals?)I earned my engineering degree there and worked at a coupleof different companies for close to 11 years where I learned alot about machinery (assembly line conveyors, automatedmachines)Did you know there is a BIIIIIIG difference between scienceand engineering? (Ask me later and I’ll be happy to explain thetwo.)
Digital ArtDisliked engineering sufficiently (not creative enoughfor my tastes) that I had to change careers.I’m currently an animation student at DePaul Universityin the Loop. (Check out my website, The AnimatedWorld of Martin Lindsey, www.martinlindsey.com)I’ve learned 2D and 3D animation and here at the FabLab I finally get to combine my love of science anddigital art every day.
