Today, February 8th, 2017, I had the opportunity to speak with Duy Vu (https://notduyswear.wordpress.com/). Duy was walking around the art exhibit courtyard looking like he needed a conversation partner. I approached him and now recognize how friendly and easygoing he is. Duy is a first year Computer Science Major with an interest in gaming and coding.
When Duy learned that I was participating in a robotics laboratory, he seemed very ecstatic. He has a background in coding, and started to talk to me about how he programs games and applications for personal use as well as for others. He seemed like a very self motivated person as well. He says that he has friends that he often observes and learns from, and uses to gain a better understanding of coding.
Duy also discussed his love for video games with me. He likes to play Overwatch on his computer, and even made his “Death Landscape” project focused on him dying from playing too many video games. That sounds like a die hard gamer to me!
Thanks for reading about my discussion with Duy. Stay tuned for this weeks Artist Conversation!
