Graduate developer, former arts admin, always an artist
There's a lot of systems in the world. Ecosystems, political systems, design systems. I've decided that I'm into 'symbolic systems'. That cuts across languages, programming, and anything that operates with symbols, signs and codes.
Specifically, I'm interested in full stack web development, linguistics, art, writing and a lot of languages - from German and Persian to Japanese and Kunwinjku. Oh and I also love dreams. The original symbolic system.
All these systems are intricate and fascinating, but not for their own sake. In the end I think they exist to communicate things, the big things that are important to people.
I'm fundraising for a very worthy and interesting cause! chuffed.org/project/dream-network-journal
