“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

QSO LENS: The Interview

I'm so proud of this it's hard to hold it in...I was very lucky to have been invited to Vilnius on the occasion of Emilia Škarnulytė's QSO Lens installation, to talk about it, have a dialogue with her and all kinds of other events, such as this radio interview. I was hosted so beautifully and taken to so many fascinating places and events that I almost burst. My host was fantastically kind, generous and...just...awesome in general, and the group at lsrge was amazing.

Škarnulytė is an award-winning film maker and artist working in all kinds of media. If you don't know her work, you should. I'm going to let the interview speak for itself right now and write some more later. It's in Lithuanian and English. What you have to understand about English speaking people is that we are linguistic cripples. English isn't a language, so we never really had to learn anything, plus it's so pervasive (because of its intrinsic creole nature) that you can get away with not learning any languages. It's a bit shameful...
