On this episode of Burning Down the House, Curtis B. Wayne is joined in the studio by Jen Tullock: actor and co-host of Heritage Radio Network’s The Morning After. Tune in to hear discussions regarding the intersection of art and architecture, and how both art forms express a narrative. Jen recalls her childhood, and what constitutes the notion of a home. Later, Curtis and Jen discuss how upbringing reflects one’s attitude towards art. Do artists from suburbs react against their experiences in their work? Or is their art informed by their life? Hear some old clips of John Hejduk discussing acts of architecture and what makes built objects works of architecture. Hear about how set design engages and heightens theatrical works, especially when including biophilic elements. This episode has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch.
