In Summer 2013 I was asked to present at Objet Sonore - a lecture series and podcast based in Montreal and inspired by Small Talk. I presented an informal ethnography of tumblr users, and some conclusions about art in the age of tumblr. Below are my slides from the talk.
In the podcast Jamie Woollard and I discuss mapping the zeitgeist with tumblr posts, bitcoin, how to lie on a grant application, "the accidental audience", possible ontological frameworks for taste, how/when it's possible to know the audience of your work, growing up in the suburbs, and useless small talk about what it's like to live in Toronto vs Montreal. 1 hour and 45 minutes.
