This is the talk I gave at Grand Valley State University. During the Q&A I was first told I was a finalist for Art Prize, so that’s why none of the issues around the funding and giving away the prize are mentioned.
This is what I was thinking about and talking about in September 2014. Topics covered include:
- Growing up in San Mateo, CA
- Liberal Education
- What art is for
- Jesus of Nazareth vs. Jesus the King
- Monet’s Haystacks
- Futurist Theory
- Some work I made
- The problem with awe and wonder
- The problem with explicit persuasion
And there are jokes.
