Conversations With Artists, Writers, and Curators
Keep the Channel Open is a series of in-depth and intimate conversations with people working in all different creative fields.
Since 2016, I’ve talked with painters, novelists, short-story writers, poets, photographers, podcasters, gallerists, and more, about their work, their creative processes, and the things that matter to them. I’ve had conversations about the poetry of names, conceptual landscape photography, space opera and hippo cowboys, the importance of representation in visual art, and all manner of other topics.
