Is it Hubris?

The more I learn, the more I thirst for more. Every new thing is exciting, and another wonder yet to be aware of. New Media is a key that has unlocked the potential of all the things I have done in the past. Skills that I have taught myself across spectrums. I taught myself how to use digital image programs. I taught myself how to create 3d models. I taught myself how to program. I learned to create art. I taught myself how to do some very basic electronics.

I had never considered that all these self taught skills would be the basis upon which an entire profession is founded. I have always wanted to be on the forefront of technological progression. I wanted to be part of that revolution. I didn’t think I had the skills or the know how. I literally stumbled into this program as I discovered that computer science was not for me. I had no idea what I stumbled in to, or what to expect. Then I discovered something fantastic and exciting. No one else has the skills either! We are still learning, and developing, and we are all stumbling around trying to figure it out. The fact that we are willing to share in that exploration and push those boundaries together means something to me.

For me, this has been a dream come true. The option to be able to let my imagination loose into the world is liberating. There is so much that has been pent up within me. Dreams of being able to create something tangible. Not only that, but something functional. Something that runs, and operates to my desires, and needs. I can bring meaning from nothing. My mind is given the power to express into reality what has always been unreachable.

With every tool I learn, I discover a new way to bend this world to my will. There is some discovery of the god like powers being given to me. I can twist whatever I want into something else. Who is to say that I can’t do a thing. My imagination is vast, and deep. I have spent years within universes across time and space. There are lives lived and lost. There are nations, and species. Histories that never were, and those that have yet to come. I dream all the possibilities, and explore their depths. My passion is in exploration. The power of What If is beyond compare. The roads you can walk, and the oceans you can swim are endless.

There is nothing more compelling then the realization that I have a power the few people have. I have the technology to produce more technology. I have the ability to design it, program it, build it. It doesn’t take much to have an idea. You may feel good that you have solved the problem. Yet when it becomes physical, there is no problem. Not only did you solve it, but you applied it. You built it with your own hands.

God forbid that I can call what I create art. There is no difference in the medium. Whether I carved it out of pixels or marble, it should not matter. Art is the expression of the mind. The medium is the choice of the artist. However, the artist that knows more then just one medium becomes a master.
