Iris Bernblum drawings

On this pod's weekcast Iris Bernblum joins Brian and Ryan for an unadorned conversation about her current studio practice. Bernblum’s work explores an animalic kinship, navigating a longing for the unknowable natural world. The pair conjures a sensual environment by imbuing the space with scent, sound, and lush color. Her cross disciplinary practice includes watercolors, video and sculpture speaking to ideas around human desire to control and tame wild spaces.

Name Drops:

Also, we dropped the first NFT Bad at Sports has ever made, the first podcast on Foundation, and the first interview with both Kayvon Tehranian and Lindsay Howard. Maybe the only NFT we will ever make and it is hella meta (like not the facebook nonsense).

Drops at 11am CST on Friday November 19th, 2021. Good luck friends.
