Kate Burns returns this week to share an interview with artist member, Donald Daedalus. She delved into the philosophical inspirations in his ideas and work, investigated the chasm between Books, proper and Books, digital, and elicited insight into his new projects. Here’s the interview:
KB: Your website embodies Deleuze’s and Guattari’s philosophical concept of the rhizome, which functions as a metaphor that privileges the messiness of history and its cultural transactions through a de-centered, non-hierarchical model with no beginning and no end. This concept also lends itself well to representing an artist’s pattern of thought and inspiration. What are the risks and the benefits of presenting yourself online in this way?
