Hello friends. This is my first blog post, so I think an introduction is in order. I am creating this blog for a few reasons, but the main two are as follows. Firstly, to provide information surrounding my research into mythology and how it can be used to help guide us in the rapidly developing technological renaissance. Secondly, to keep this research available to anyone wanting to read about my work. Free access to information can be difficult to obtain as often times primary sources can require a university pass or payment in order to gain access to them. I won't be able to unlock everything, but I will strive to provide links to the sources that are mentioned in the posts and podcast, so that those who want to pursue topics of interest further have the information necessary to jump down these rabbit holes.
My own journey has led me to a Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Arizona which I began in September of this year 2022 AD. This adventure here is an honor, but I also want my time as a student myself to be marked by advancements made in my evolution both as an artist and educator. As such, I have proposed an course outline that focuses on the integration of technological training into undergraduate and even graduate programs. The core of this proposal sits at a growing need for classes meant to arm those brave enough to jump into the world of art and design.
Lastly, I wanted to finish up this first post by expressing my thanks to you my dear reader for simply being here. The Farbeyond Podcast began as a simple audio adventure with my childhood friend three years ago, and has magically transformed into a space of connection for those interested in mythology and its role in our increasingly science-fiction like lives.
