Jul 21, 2023, TRT: 01:06:39
On Goingness is a pod project started by fiber artist Jenny Morris, made with the intention of documenting transparent interviews with artists + creative entrepreneurs around the world. These talks are meant to lend an unfiltered lens into the underbelly of process and work. Laura Splan was interviewed by Jenny Morris about the inspiration and process behind her interdisciplinary artwork. In this episode, Laura discusses where art and science meet, "sticky settings" in software and DNA, the relationship between learning and teaching, the presence of sound, early memories of where her art practice began and where it stands now.
