Gene Pool#17: Emilia Telese

Artist, Advocate and A-N magazine’s NAN Scheme Co-ordinator, Emilia Telese joins us in July 2009, for a Summery discussion that ranges from Brain Machines and McJob’s to Artist networks and issues around the valuation of culture in the UK and abroad.

Emilia’s own work has moved from digital media and sound work, through interventionist performance which articulates ideas around social politics, celebrity, religion and individual freedoms. http://www.emiliatelese.com

Gene Pool

gene_pool_july09We recorded a new episode of my quarterly “Gene Pool” media arts podcast this week. Italian born artist, Emilia Telese was our guest, discussing her own projects and the Networking Artist Networks (NAN) scheme that she co-ordinates for A-N magazine in the UK.

She generously trekked up from Lewes, on a night where the weather in the South East came as close it ever does to torrential, tropical rain. Good humour prevailed as our recorded interview touched on binaural beats, turning vacant High St. shops into makeshift galleries, the joys of circuit bending and the tricky issues around making the artistic life bring in a sustainable amount of money.

My accomplices for this recording were fellow artists and organisers, Janet Curley Cannon and Jon Lockhart. The podcast is free and can be downloaded directly via the side bar on the right of this page, and subscribed to via it’s iTunes Channel.
