My guest today is a fascinating person and a true explorer, named Patricia Morgan. A conceptual artist based in Tucson, Arizona, she begins each piece with the concept, then searches for a medium through which to share it. Using sculpture, photography, and materials relevant to the concept itself, such as concrete, coal, or baby-bottle nipples, she creates outsized interdisciplinary installations that evoke deep human emotions. Patricia was warm and welcoming, as well as insightful and well spoken. I truly enjoyed our conversation and I hope you do as well.
In our conversation, we discussed how stories are seldom forgotten and always renewed, as we go through life we keep collecting information, past events and pasts memories that we add to, understanding how groups act and the species acts by observing the human psyche, the concept is always very important, if something doesn’t fit with the concept let it go, the purpose of the Explorer poet Podcast is to explore the blurry line between our physical world and our abstract realities, myths having been created to help us solve problems we don’t have answers for, we can’t predict the future and we are led astray, the Judeo-Christain world, science and mythology, literalism in America, need to be heard to heal from trauma, everybody on the planet is playing out some myth in their head, we all need to share in the same story, less of a common myth, Antarctica, Greenland, glaciers, how stability is based on memory, how we use memory to frame our lives in the present, Half Dome, taking comfort in insignificance, life taking a different perspective, how our story is collapsing and we need someone to write a new mythology, and how to how being thought provoking is the contribution artists can make today.
