    Steph catches up with artist Ian Gibbins in this special science-themed episode presented in partnership with Inspiring SA.

    Artist Interview: Kaspar Schmidt Mumm

    Artist Interview: Kaspar Schmidt Mumm

    In this episode, Steph catches up with multidisciplinary artist Kaspar Schmidt Mumm. They throw back to his mother's artistic influence, and trace that framing of art as a vehicle for bigger things through to his latest exhibition, Rockamora. Tune in to hear why participatory sculpture isn't at all like sitting in the front row of a comedy show, and what Ursula Le Guin has to do with offering chips to bullies.
