Reese Schroeder (b. 1959) grew up in a hyper-creative environment, with both his father and mother as college professors of music. From early childhood
Reese was exposed to a rich artistic cultural life, with his father's cutting edge experimental electronic music and his mother's classical operatic work. From
1965 through 1977 Reese spent summers studying music and art at Interlochen (NMC) in Michigan where his parents both taught. The early pursuit of logic
among chaos led Reese to study architecture at Texas Tech University, College of Engineering, where he tested his belief in merging art with architecture,
studying art and film in addition to the core curriculum.
Since 1988, Reese has practiced as an architect with prestigious firms in Boston and Dallas, expanding his creative thinking through formalism with his
pursuit of New Media Art, using computers as his canvas for painting. Recognized early in 1996 for his New Media works on the computer by The University
of Texas at Dallas, Reese gave a dedicatory talk at the opening of UTD's New Media Arts Lab. The following year, he was invited to the Board of Advisors for
New Media at UTD.
