Dear Visitor, i have moved my website to a new host with my own domain: https://vascobasque.com Direct Link to the content of this page: https://vascobasque.com/about/ The new page is much faster and adfree! A lot of old content from this site has been updated and rewritten. This wordpress blog, will remain online, until the traffic has dropped to a low level.
I am a 37 year old Medicine Student from Germany. I am interested in many things reaching from Design to Astrophysics. A Jack-of-all-Trades but master of none… always looking for new ways to express myself and to give my thoughts a form. I like aesthetical clean Design that keeps functionality in mind.
Relation to Art
My relationship to art dates back to my childhood. Since my father was an architect and artist, I practically grew up with art. But although I also thought about studying architecture, I finally chose a different path.
So I studied medicine and completed almost all the way to the state Examinition that hopefully will lie behind me in some month. Beside the Medical Education Art and Design have been my favorite Interests all the time. I do not have a specific focus in the arts, but if I had to choose, I would say that I like digital and traditional painting the most.
Bits and Bytes
My first “Homecomputer” was a Commedore Amiga 500. Since then working and playing with Computers has always been a big part in my life. About 1 Year ago i switched from windows to Linux cause i have heard so much good things about it, that i wanted to test it for myself. I never regretted that i had done this! Actually i still work with windows sometimes for special tasks but the most time i stay with Linux (Kubuntu) and use the availble open-source software.
I am supporting the Ideas and Principles standing behind Open-Source-Software and believe that with the growing of the digital globalized world open-source software/os will become more important to withstand security risks and to keep the internet free and democratic.
