Pocket size book written by one of the top art critics in the USA. Simple. Direct. Easy to read. Makes a whole bunch of great points. I’ve sent it to a couple of artist friends of mine. One of whom changed his whole style as a result and his work is infinitely better.
Fascinating. Written as a kind of discussion with the reader. Is AI going to take over? How might it happen and what can we do? How will we change as a human being as technology starts to enhance our lives. This is one of Elon Musk’s favourite books. And apparently Barack Obama’s too.
I don’t normally tell anyone about this book. So, keep it to yourself. It’s been really helpful in learning how to work with groups of people, running workshops, hothouses, or just making me wonder about ideas and how they can grow. It’s written by a director for the stage. He also wrote plays and acted. He is seen as a bit of a maverick and is well respected. Broke a ton of rules and worked with actors in new ways. One of the most interesting books I’ve read. Shhhh. Don’t tell anyway else about it!
