Artist Interview: Kevin Callaghan

Words of the day: bank. relevant. trust. time. forever.

Kevin Callaghan, artist based in Glasgow, joins ahtcast for this interview. Kevin shares a bit about color and how it might just need to be dynamic in order to be released from his studio. He also talks scale as a result of my bringing up the word "artifact" when reacting to an aspect of his work. 

Kevin later humors me in offering to answer my "What is Utopian philosophy?" question. Somehow Rihanna's music follows us into that stream of conversation. Listen below for more! (some strong language).
