This is great: http://tmagazine.blo...titions-part-1/ It won't let me embed, so you'll have to go follow the link.

There are certain things that creative people share in common, and lately a chat with the artist Doug Aitken seems to be one of them. Aitken’s 2006 book, “Broken Screen,” featured interviews with 26 artists, including Robert Altman and Rem Koolhaas. Now, with his latest video project, “Patterns & Repetitions,” the artist sits down with a new cast in an attempt to put the pieces of the creative puzzle back together again. Each week, The Moment will feature a different segment: Mike Kelley talking about the Motor City; Jacques Herzog on instinct and architecture; Jack White (above) imagining Michelangelo as a modern-day blogger. But don’t be fooled by the coffee mugs and the California sunshine. Aitken doesn’t do anything casually. The subtext of the conversations is nothing less than the future of art itself.

What a great interview, I loved it. :)

(My personal view is no, Michelangelo wouldn't be pursued by paparazzi, RAPHAEL would be pursed by paparrazzi while Michelangelo sat in his studio and seethed--judging by what I've read, anyway!)

You know they had to talk for longer than three minutes. I want the rest.

Fascinating, even though I have no idea who Doug Aitken is. I like the sonic table too. I have a tiled floor throughout the house. If I were having it tiled this year rather than last century I would make each tile play a note as you walk over it.

I like the way Jack pronounces Michelangelo and De Stijl. He's so American. You can take the boy out of Detroit, but you can't take Detroit out of the boy!

Movie Macabre cameo? :o :lol:

This might be coming on tonight so be sure to tune in, although that usually means suffering through an awful movie.

Well you didn't miss anything, but I sure wish I had. Haha. Hopefully, Third Man will inform us when he makes his appearance. I hope he hasn't already.

I thought The Black Belles wrote that and Jack just produced it. Did he play drums on the recording?
