Next up - A Conversation with Paul Miller
We had a great time with Birgitta on Tuesday! If you missed the conversation, you can still watch it here.
Next up, bringing with him probing questions and a critical eye, Paul Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky, is joining Barrett for a frank conversation about Pursuance.
Paul Miller - “My tools are information.”
Paul's art juxtaposes mediums and genres and disregards the boundaries of disciplines. He has rescored silent films, produced a photo book of the Antarctic, and crafted a multimedia performance piece on the history of the Internet. He can talk about Roman history or string theory as readily as he can analyze Steve Reich. Paul has the uncanny ability to draw connections among superficially isolated phenomena - "the story unfolds while the fragments coalesce."
Paul recognizes the innately political nature of art's ability to craft a narrative from disparate sources. In an age where feeling has often trumped fact in the political arena, he has found new significance in his work. “The artist’s role is not to say ‘hey, this is interesting’, but to grab people by the scruff of the neck and say ‘you can’t live life without thinking a different way about this,’” he says. “Another world is possible.”
We're very glad that he is joining us.
