Happy New Year, listeners!

Unfortunately due to unforeseen illness, I don’t have an interview for you today. I understand it’s not exactly the way to start a new year, but you can’t tame nature…or the flu. I’m slowly getting back to my normal, motivated self. I promise you something next week.

Above is an awesome video my friend Colin showed me. The clip is from an installation that was in The Curve, Barbican, London. The artist, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, created a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape.

'Sirius A and Pups' by Alexia Serpentini

‘Sirius A and Pups’ by Alexia Serpentini

Hello there listeners.

Are you ready for this!? Special extended episode! I won’t judge you if you can’t take it all in with one sitting. That’s why you should subscribe to the podcast!! Anytime, anywhere, straight through, or take your time…at your convenience. Available in iTunes store.

Today’s episode of Blind Date features a good friend, the always warm, the always inspirational, Alexia Serpentini. I forget sometimes how similar we are, as well as how similar our goals are. It’s via Skype, so the sound quality is little funky. Such is Skype.

Alexia received two BFAs from the University of Louisville; one in 2D and one in 3D art. Currently she is a MA Creative Cities Candidate at King’s College London, in the United Kingdom.  Her focus is Post-Conflict Cultural Policy Development in the Middle East, Egyptian Cultural Regulation. Alexia has done work such as glass sculpture, film, photography, installation, and experiential pieces.

We touch on things such as education, creative solutions to socio-political matters, and briefly on my motivations for Blind Date. Figures an interview with Alexia would turn out different.

See samples of her work either at cargocollective.com/alexiaserpentini, or on November 11th, at the first ever Blind Date hosted event.

LIVE. In person. Artists. Musicians. Film.
