This week I interviewed Philadelphia based artist, Zoe Cohen. My interest was peaked when I heard about her latest project, "Show Someone How You Feel About Something". The basic idea of it is that you do a drawing for someone and Zoe mails it to them. The project has gotten a lot of press lately, and has been seen in many different places- on site, blogs, newspapers- so I wanted to sit down and get an in-depth view of the artist and her beliefs. In the conversation we talk about everything from public vs private art, politics, the NYC /Phila scene, to the relationships that people have with one another via art.
For more info on Zoe and her projects, and to see images of what we are talking about check out her website, www.zoecohen.com.
Approximate run-time: 28 minutes.
