The role of artists?

Artists can navigate and help to understand. They can turn science into emotion. They can be examples of living, where creating isn’t just making stuff. 

Nikki McClure

This interview in Orion with artist Nikki McClure touches on a lot of important points about the role of the arts in society. I appreciate her work deeply, and one of her works of a crow hangs in my bedroom, where I look at it daily. I might disagree a bit with some of the statements here on writing and how writing works, but, of course, it is true that people read much less these days. Read the whole interview here.
