Podcast from the Prairie - Episode 5: “The Portrait of an Artist as an Old Man”
In this episode of “Podcast from the Prairie,” Wes Jackson and Robert Jensen discuss the creativity of both humans and the larger living world. In addition to finding expression in art, human creativity also is essential in the scientific enterprise and is part of everyday life. The ecosphere is creative as well, making diversity out of the raw elements of the universe. A theologian even suggested that “serendipitous creativity” was an appropriate metaphor for God. Jackson, who brought many of these ideas together in his “art without ego” exhibition last year, will help make sense of the role of creativity in life and in our lives.
