A few days ago, Carla Boserman wrote to me to propose an interview via Skype. She is in Madrid and I, right now, in London. The distance, although both are digital habituals, mattered: Carla is illustrator and student of CCCD Master (in which a few weeks ago I was teaching a class and where she captured me remarkably well) and his proposal was to “draw” the interview and do what she has coined as storygram.
Nevertheless we did the experiment, via skype and then only with sound, no video. We talked about journalism, specifically on these issues.
The result is in spanish but I think you can catch the essence:
Which are the boundaries of journalistic formats? Who decides on these, if anything like this can be decided?
The artist intellectual-mediation in situations like this -an interview- (unusual, at least for me) opens a whole new world of possibilities that other authors like Enrique Flores and some more are rehearsing for some time in other environments such as demonstrations, meetings or events of all kinds, like conventions, and so forth.
Maybe tomorrow also on hard news? My bet is yes.
Experimenting is not only a pleasure, it is a road full of surprises and first stones that will build things much larger.
