Just finished doing a radio show interviewing artist Ming-Jer Kuo. Just as we were ending someone called in from Japan. I usually don't get callers. He was trying to teach me Japanese. Here is the link to the show.
Ming-Jer's work is the result of his observations on, research in and responses to the complexity of urban systems. He uses shifting perspectives and variations in scales to study urban areas and form, and to explore and respond to ideas of urban organization and management. Working with lens-based images such as aerial photographs, he captures repeated urban patterns, present unseen scenes and illustrate urban information. Through the presentation of both photographic prints and sculptural installations, he intends to blur the boundaries between architecture, urban planning, design and photography and to encourage viewers to resee and rethink our living surrounding.
Radio show today was about the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company. Nai-Ni was on along with Andrew Chiang, the Exective Director of the company. They will be performing in Brooklyn on the 22nd of this month and then at Flushing Town Hall in late March. Each a completely different show. Here is the link to the radio show.
