Tim Barber is a photographer, curator and designer in NYC. Barber worked as the photo editor for Vice Magazine (2003-2005) and founded the online gallery and image archive tinyvices.com (2005-2012), which was released as a free App (2010) and evolved into time-and-space.tv (2013-2016), a curated community platform for artists. Barber co-curated the inaugural New York Photo Festival (2008), curated / edited a series of five monographs published by the Aperture Foundation (2008) and launched the independent publishing house TV Books (2008-2010).

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
