In this episode of Forms of Life, host Nato Thompson talks to artist and activist Mark Read about his mobile guerrilla projection unit The Illuminator, famous for lighting up New York City buildings with slogans in support of Occupy Wall Street, less than 24 hours after protestors marked the Occupy movement’s first anniversary.
Forms of Life is a monthly podcast hosted by Creative Time’s chief curator, Nato Thompson. Guests are culture makers whose work posits new ways of looking at political realities. By addressing a wide variety of issues—such as alternative economies, calcified political structures and new forms of collective living—or simply by being a thorn in the side of normality, Forms of Life interviews provide an opportunity to think counterintuitively about social conditions faced by people around the world.
