In this episode we hear from the artists and curators involved with the exhibitions The More Things Change and Bill Fontana: Sonic Shadows. First up, artist Tacita Dean describes her current obsession, trees, in relation to her old love: the sea. Artist Peter Wegner discusses his works The United States of Nothing and In [ ] Veritas in the context of systems of classification and naming. In the next segment artist Bill Fontana describes his sound sculpture Sonic Shadows, installed in the space surrounding the museum's fifth-floor pedestrian bridge. We end this episode with a musical guest-take from the vocal/cello duo Loop!Station, who recorded their piece "Bright Lights" on the fifth-floor bridge in 2009.
