UPDATE: February 2014
ART IS A TECHNIQUE to HELP US SEE DIFFERENTLY...
Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather in Nevada's Black Rock Desert at Burning Man, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having left no trace whatsoever.
This was a discussion about a documentary on the event. JSB's insights begin around the 6 minute mark. "Artists are not included in our debate on how we build the economy for the future. They're excluded in our nation's emphasis on innovation which has been left to the STEM crowd. We're not thinking about designing for emergence. Innovation is about seeing the world differently. Who is better at helping us see the world differently than the artists?"
