The Extension public art podcast
The Extension is a podcast by Flux Projects that invites cultural contributors to participate in Atlanta-focused conversations relating to public art in social contexts.
Rachel Parish chats with Floyd Hall about the origins of her creative practice, her earliest connections to water, and how those notions inform the origins of her forthcoming project Emergence.
Dutch designer Bouke Bruins has collaborated with Flux Projects twice over the last three years to create public social design experiences, including 2019’s RailtalkATL with Wouter Corvers and 2020’s Don’t Waste Your Vote with Daan Wuben. In the latest episode of The Extension podcast, Flux Projects Brand Manager Floyd Hall chats with Bruins about some of his early projects and how he and his collaborators approach Social Design, the differences in working in Holland versus Atlanta, and how becoming a Boy Scout influenced his design practice.
Louis Corrigan reflects on his founding of Flux Projects 10 years ago, the influence of the organization in Atlanta over that time, and the impact that supporters can have in the local arts ecosystem.
In this conversation visual artist Charmaine Minniefield chats with Floyd Hall about Remembrance as Resistance: Preserving Black Narratives, her upcoming project with Flux Projects in partnership with Emory University and Historic Oakland Cemetery.
Minniefield delves into how this project fits into her artistic practice, the importance of the Ring Shout, her upbringing in the Pentecostal church, and what she wants the public to connect with in this work.
Author Anne Corbitt chats with Floyd Hall about ATL Mysteries and bringing its source material, “The Disappearance of Eliot Wiley”, to life in an interactive way. Corbitt also discusses writing her first novel, Rules for Lying, and how the city of Atlanta and the Urban South play a role in her upbringing and her work.
