Conversation about The World Contained II video animation with Journalist Alexis Madrigal
In concert with a screening of The World Contained II video animation (a collaboration with Lianne Arnold and Elisheba Ittoop), I had the opportunity through BRIC Radio at BRIC Arts | Media in downtown Brooklyn, to have a conversation about the project with independent journalist Alexis Madrigal. You can access our conversation at this link. Madrigal has also produced his own 8-part podcast titled Containers on Sound Cloud. “It looks at how global trade really works and the people who do the labor of moving stuff.”
