In January, our host (yes, Krista Tippett) was invited to interview the artist and maker Ann Hamilton. The auditorium at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts was sold-out. With that type of energy, why not live-tweet the conversation? Here are series of small snapshots of their wandering, intimate conversation. I hope you'll get a sense of Ann Hamilton's poetic imagination and how she experiences language, time, and life as a maker.
This week we'll be releasing a new podcast with physicist Brian Greene titled "Reimagining the Cosmos." At the invitation of Columbia University's Center for the Study of Science and Religion, Krista interviewed Dr. Greene at a live, public event in New York City. The room was packed with a mix of young scientists, theologians, and academics. Dr. Greene, who is best known for his hosting of two specials for the PBS series Nova, both based on his best-selling books for general readers: The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos.
