Claire Krueger : April 6th, 2016

Hey listeners!

Sarah and I are on ‘Spring Break’ this week, and I’m posting from Joshua Tree, California. It is so beautiful and serene out here…

Anyway, my guest today is Claire Krueger. We chatted about film, perfectionism, and our issues with patience & commitment…(I’m somewhat kidding about my patience.)

Though Claire dabbles in many forms of art, film is the main emphasis of her creative output. Many of her films are mixed media, or maybe a better way to say it is mixed techniques—such as diorama sets, green screening, and animation. Visually, there is usually vibrant colors and dreamlike imagery (see her film ‘The Passenger’ above.)

As you may gather from the interview, there is a wit and humor to Claire. This definitely shows in her work, in subtle ways. It’s something I really appreciate about her art. Along with this well executed wit, I think there is a certain amount of mystery and vagueness to her work that leaves the audience with questions. I feel this works in her favor, bringing the viewer back again and again.
