Art and Soul

Press/Media: Blogs, Podcasts and Social MediaPodcasts

Description

In this episode we hear from two people who are finding and creating art in places and ways in which wouldn't have been possible, or even imagined, 20 or even 10 years ago.  They believe the future of art is bright, as long as we learn to look for and at it differently. Jon McCormack is an artist with a PhD in Computer Science and is a Professor of IT, which might seem an incongruous combination, but he believes the future of art is in human-robot collaboration. Nick McGuigan is an accountant who urges people to look for art where it may not obviously be. His highly successful Artist in Residence program in the Monash faculty of Business and Economics embeds art into accounting, pushing back against the ‘boring accountant’ stereotype.
