It’s funny how timing works sometimes. Yesterday morning I picked up a couple envelopes from Princeton Architectural Press of books for review purposes. While it’s going to be a couple weeks before I can write a DesignNotes review on Artificial Light: A Narrative Inquiry into the Nature of Abstraction, Immediacy, and other Architectural Fictions by Keith Mitnick and I Am My Family: Photographic Memories and Fictions by Rafael Goldchain I thought I would mention a podcast w/ Rafael. I frequently listen to to the daily CBC podcast Q w/ Jian Ghomeshi and while walking to work I listened to Monday’s edition. Keep in mind that I see and hear a ton of things everyday so it’s actually hard for me to keep track of all that stuff. While listening to the conversation going on w/ the podcast, the books I mentioned above were the last thing I was thinking about. The last interview of the show was w/ a photographer that was doing something kind of interesting. He was photographing himself as different family members from his past. It was an interesting process that he was going through. As he kept talking I was like hmmm, this is starting to sound familiar – I just got a book w/ a guy that was doing something pretty similar. Of course it was the same photographer, but for a couple minutes I was wondering if there’s more than one person looking back at their family in the same way. The entire podcast is worth listening to, but if you’re just interested in hearing the interview w/ the photographer Rafael Goldchain click on this link http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?i=37451804&id=256943801 and fast forward to 34:29.
