Common ground: Holly Herndon in conversation with James Bridle

Our desire for control is precisely the problem. We are never going to understand the world more broadly. We’re not going to be able to talk to trees in the way that we talk to one another. But we need to be able to live meaningfully, equitably with them and with all other natural systems.

James Bridle

This conversation between two artists whose works I admire has it all. Both Holly Herndon and James Bridle’s perspectives on technology and how they’re using that perspective in their works is inspiring. When they both came together, it turns into a conversation you want to quote most of it.

For the first timers, you should definitely listen Holly’s latest album PROTO and read James’s book New Dark Age. Maybe do it both at the same time.
