Art Blog Creativity Podcasts Psyber

Podcasts I’ve enjoyed lately

I’ve been using Pocketcasts on the iPhone. The first one I’ve liked in all these years. The iTunes one never satisfied and the way I used to do it – was clumsy. But it worked and was essentially what I did on the Palm.

I am nature

I am nature triptych

Posted a few on my other blog in the last week or two… on a theme – nature and how thinks relate to their past origins.

I am as it were in a slow almost imperceptible meditation on the word “inevitable”. The art of finding a way through the maze of the possible. Certain turns forfeit possibilities but open others. Beed reading E O Wilson on all this. Pigs can’t fly.

The future is not what it used to be


I am (still) reading Walter Benjamin’s Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction I enjoy the quote that opens it by Paul Valerey. Sounds like Mcluhan, but he is talking (Benjamin too) about shifts due to mechanical development – reproduction, now this needs updating with an essay about art in the age of electronic production.

More Paul Valery quotes follow, including the bit I have paraphrased above from the Benjamin essay.
