#173: Where Do You Put the Chisel?


This week, inspired by a recent NPR story, we talk about the idea of art as an experience, where the mechanics of viewing objects become almost more important than the objects themselves. We also discuss some of the opportunities that young people have today, with regard to the viewing and sharing of their experiences, that we simply didn’t have when we were growing up. Plus, with so many cameras on the market, how do you recommend one to a friend who just wants to take good pictures? Lee Friedlander is our Photographer of the Week.
