One of my discoveries last year was I am able to easily record the audio from conferences. Considering the ephemeral nature of talks, the ability to record the audio and give that talk a longer shelf life appealed to me.
So I was excited to get an invitation from Mark Deutsche to take part in the Tropical Futures Forum. He allowed me to record the audio and release it as a podcast. Thanks again Mark! There was a lot of learning that day, and I was happy to have the chance to absorb it again through audio. I didn't want to post the full talks because most had something to do with what was on a power point presentation. So it wouldn't be of much value, but there were plenty snippets that were worth highlighting.
So what follows are highlighted portions of the talks from Myka Arnado, Mark Deutsch, Dan Matutina, Chris Fussner, Chad Manzo, Roxy Navarro, and Hannah Martinez-Florendo, as well as a little commentary from me.
Enjoy the podcast!

This month at Qube Gallery: Myriad by Lean Reboja. He explores the complexities of the human psyche with his 4th solo exhibition, Myriad, opening on September 26, 6:00 PM, at Qube Gallery.
While Lean paints a fictitious world inhabited by beasts and bizarre characters, they are autobiographic and metaphorical accounts of his introspections. Pop surrealism, the core of Lean’s technique, becomes the perfect conduit for Myriad’s intention: to explore the in-betweens of the spectrum – the multiplicities and diverse possibilities engraved within us, choices and contingencies, and inner conflicts and dilemmas, that inevitably shape who we are.
