This conversation will serve as an extension to a recent studio visit with LA-based artist John Houck. Houck‘s art practice has moved seamlessly across disciplines from programming, architecture, photography and most currently painting. Join John and Ronni as they discuss the complexities amongst concepts in photography, computation and his interest in psychoanalysis in relation to art and art production.
This series of ARTISTS AT WORK? is recorded in front of a live audience in the garden of LM Projects studio. The recording of this program will air on
KCHUNG Radio. Listen at 1630 AM or streaming at KCHUNG
