Ideas expressed in this episode:
• Art being able to communicate messages that words can't describe
• Creating, manifesting, capturing, hunting for... "IT"
• The podcast highlighting todays "unsung heroes". These artists have the potential to eventually become "cult classics".
• Our job as an artist is to translate experiences and to share them with the world
• Different levels of dimensions and consciousness
• Virtual reality becoming a part of reality
• Living with love and fear in our lives. Creating a no fear zone
• Becoming Photo Editor for Vice
• Conversations becoming artworks within themselves
• Trying to live within a non-consumerist way of life
• The art world being a vast sea of hits and misses. Being both deep and shallow.
• Our relationship with our own truths and universal truths
