BB pal Ken Goldberg, UC Berkeley engineering professor and artist, curates a fantastic free lecture series called the Art, Technology, & Culture Colloquium. At a recent event, Ken interviewed multimedia art pioneer Laurie Anderson. The audio of the interview is now available online:
This event was held in conjunction with Anderson's newest performance, "Homeland," which includes songs and stories that create a poetic and political portrait of contemporary American culture. Conceived as one long piece of music, "Homeland" moves through many worlds, from Greek tragedy to American business models, addressing the current obsession with fear, violence, and security.
