I’m with you. I’m definitely a music and math geek, and one stop away from being an art and science geek. Looking at people’s MFA projects, there are loads of interdisciplinary geeks out there fusing art and science in really clever ways.
I have a theory about comics and gaming geeks, as opposed to arts and science geeks. If art geeks and science geeks have their one discipline that they’re pouring themselves into, the comics and gaming geeks are looking for escape. Not saying there’s anything wrong with that, or even that someone can’t have both motivations at the same time, but I do think the motivations are more different between science and comics geekery than they are between science and theater geekery.
In engineering school, I met so many of these people. They not only thought any major other than engineering was a toilet paper degree dooming the graduate to a life of poverty, but thought having any interests in the arts or music were a waste of time. My guess is they were pushed into engineering by their parents, or were after a paycheck in Big Ag, Big Pharma, or Defense. Whatever it is, they had issues.
I believe we call these people “neckbeards” today.
I’m not sure what we call artists and musicians who don’t like technology. I’m sure there are some, but they’re about as rare as computer illiterate math professors, who most assuredly exist.
