I really enjoyed this interview with Seth Godin for “On Being” with Krista Tippet. He has some great advice for how to create a career in a post-industrial era, and some excellent insights on making art in general. My favorite quote was something to the effect of:
“It’s easy to keep track of what art is by what it’s not…. it’s not following a manual, reading a dummies book, reading a map… it tends to be people who work with a compass instead, who have an understanding of true north and are willing to solve a problem in an interesting way”.
