Hello again listeners.

The weather’s been odd lately in Louisville, but it hasn’t stopped me from running around, chatting up artists. Over the weekend I caught up with an old friend of mine, Neil Mulac. We discussed acting, Carl Jung, Indigo children, and creative obstacles. Neil is an actor of both film and theatre, who also writes scripts, screenplays, and poetry. Above is a sample of some of his film work titled ‘Mae Waits’ ( a film inspired by the ‘Mumblecore’ movement ). Currently, he is in the midst of collaborating on a short film along with planning some plays for the near future.

Enjoy.

'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.

It’s Wednesday again, listeners. For you today, I have Benjamin Cook. Ben is an U of L graduate whose focus was originally painting, but set out to broadens his ideas of art. Themes Ben explores are current events, technology, nostalgia, and the way artwork is consumed. Much of his work is a direct respond to the constantly changing times we live in, where input is coming at you from all sides, all the time.

You can learn more about Benjamin at benjamincookart.com. Of course, you can also listen to the interview either through the player below or by subscribing to the podcast.

Thanks, and enjoy!

A little teaser before Wednesday..

This week’s creator is Benjamin Cook. Ben graduated with a degree in painting from the University of Louisville, but has expanded his horizons due to feelings of limitation with the traditional form of paint/canvas work. He works through his love/hate relationship with technology and the changing climate of how art is consumed, in interesting way.

Be sure to listen in on Wednesday, to get a clearer idea about this new and innovated artist.

Happy Wednesday listeners.

Today’s show features the talented Lindsay Sant. A goodhearted artist who has a hand in many different ‘pies’, so to speak. An U of L Alumni whose focus has taken some major shifts; from print making, to film, to video projection, to Graphic Design, Radio show host, and so much more. Definitely an interview which I regrettable had to edit down quite a bit. Computers can only handle so much, I suppose…

Also, quite a soothing interview, I might add (I listened to it enough to know!)

For more information about Lindsay’s show on ArtxFM Louisville, you can go the following links:

I apologize to those of you who tried to listen in today…due to some issues, only half of the episode aired. Beyond my control…but, BUT, I have the FULL interview here for you right here and right now! (just use the player below)

My guest today was Amy Ritter, an Ohio State University Grad student who does everything from sculptures consisting of raw materials like old denim, to performance art akin to the Fluxus Movement. We had a great discussion…
