Ey Up Michael Burkitt
Maybe its because this episode comes out on my second wedding anniversary, and maybe it’s because during this conversation both me and Michael get rather uxorious – or rather that we discuss the idea of love within art, but I do feel this is something that is often over-looked as either the driving force behind or the content of a work itself. If anything, this podcast is a labour of love, and has given me license to connect or re-connect with people in what feels like a meaningful way.
Michael is certainly one of those people and someone I have always loved talking to. On a brief trip back from his new home of São Paulo it was great to catch up with him, verbally recount some of his works (which often only exist within their verbal recounting), and talk about another shared love of ours – art education.
