Season 2 Episode 8: Old Work

The topic of old work takes us from the practical – archives, digital storage, physical copies – to the reflective. We also talk about biography, how knowing about an artist’s past influences the way we look at their work, and how with social media we can connect with and feel like we know present day artists in new ways. There’s a dialog about the power of being able to see artists collective growth through their own lenses, and then we end by going down the rabbit hole of the way we talk about artists growth vs. writers growth.

Heads up if you have little ones around, occasionally some colorful language slips into our dialog.

Thank you for listening in on our thoughts and conversations. Now we’d love to hear from you! We’re putting together a “listener’s questions” episode and we’d love for you to share your questions about creativity and our individual practices.  We’d also love to hear about your stories, both the victories and the struggles with your own creative process. Send it over to our e-mail address or dm us on Instagram. We look forward to bringing your voices into the podcast!
