Good episode? Give it some love!
Artist Jean-Ulrick Désert joins us for a conversation about the power and responsibility of art. How do we confront hatred in the world? Creativity is not the easiest response, but it might be necessary. Désert uses common and recognizable objects from everyday life, but presents them with a poetic twist meant to interrupt expectations—and to create space for dialogue in the place of discomfort. Is he changing the world with his art? He wouldn't go that far, but he might be planting much-needed seeds of change around the world.
