Yesterday afternoon I signed on for my first Art+Talk Hangout and it was a blast. Art+Talk Hangout is a series of casual conversations with artists from around the world that are streamed online in real-time using Google Hangouts. The brainchild of Samantha Villenave, an artist located in Ardèche, France, Art+Talk in an opportunity for artists to shed the pretense of the gallery walls and speak frankly and unscripted about their work, life and anything else that happens to come up in conversation. I will admit that I was a bit apprehensive about speaking on air but Samantha and Paul are gracious hosts and did an excellent job of making me feel welcome.
The video is an hour and 20 minutes long but choke full of flubs, gaffes and laughs (with a little insight sprinkled here and there) so give it a go - and if you have any questions about anything discussed in the video, please leave a comment and I'll answer them as soon as possible. Cheers.
