Background Details aka "biological / artistic interdisciplinary thoughts & projects"

EDUCATION

- 2009

studies biology diploma ( University of Bayreuth / University of Vienna / Humboldt University Berlin, with specialisation in medical microbiology, parasitology & genetics ) 

parallel:  learning languages, visiting exhibitions, travelling i.e.                            positioning one's perceptive apparatus into different spatial                and temporal contexts ( which it will be later on ironically                      called )

plus:   developing ability to understand the artistic and pragmatic 

           conceptions of classic and avant garde ( this topic will come                into importance a later )

- idea & concept label "LenaoooYuki" ( Sound Design: acoustic logos, conceptually related to companies,       analog&digital ) ( Yuki is not an imaginary alter ego for wanting to be Japanese like seemingly everyone,       it is a classical gag about language learning stereotypes. Actually, it means snow and being named after       a monadic entity which is super simple and super complex at the same time is kind of cool. For some             reason not too many are called "blood" or "traffic" or "noodle / soup". )

Performance ( movement / choreographed ) : 

 / / art dance ( at Vapaan Taiteen Tila ) in a piece after Pina Bausch ( Modern Dance approach ) : experienced rehearsals / stage / expressivity through movement in time and space


++++ interdisciplinary artistic interests: learning languages for semiotic fun
English ( spoken, academic ), Spanish B.1, French ( certificate for studying ), basic: Danish, Japanese, Finnish A.1.4, Korean A - level, Hindi, Icelandic ... )

++++ Brewery Los Angeles, California "what does mitten do - Z z z" ++++++ assistance : fashion photography set, outdoor // editing assistance : festival screening movie "fashion and books or something" // sound on set assistance for feature for Mexican conceptual B - movie film festival +++++ voice ( hihihi, rofl ) for a German media product ( 360 degree concert filming )+++++++++++++

 ++++++++++ I like watching media products in various languages, original language and dubbed / or with different compartments ( pictorial mixed media maybe ) to train the brain into different notions of emotional, mediated, reflections and the inherent wiring with real experienced encounters in languages and "Cultural Contexts" ( a nasty Cultural Science word to completely dissociate from everything ,"become the observer", and generating heuristic layers of phenomena, that might have a completely different intention. Then it is already too late mostly. One can see it in the eyes still. ) +++++++++++++++++++++

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++++++++++ randomly going to relevant events and saying / doing something intelligent and / or stupid ++++++++ meaning might evolve over time ++++++++
