Show Notes

On this week's show we chat with artist Ian Cheng, who since 2012 has been building a universe of sentient software, creatures, and elaborate systems of logic in the form of self-playing video games, installations, drawings, and prints. In this extended chat with host Ben Fino-Radin, Ian shares some of his deepest influences, past mentors, childhood, studio practice and rituals for creativity.
