Sanford Kwinter & Marrikka Trotter : On track (November 22, 2019)

Marrikka Trotter begins by describing her current work on shape as a precognitive experience. Sanford Kwinter responds, and their ensuing conversation touches on Gestalt aesthetics, ego death, phenomenology, Friedrich Schlegel’s hedgehog theory of art, other minds, ekphrasis, Michael Fried, Tony Smith, and Kwinter’s 1996 essay “Flying the bullet, or When did the future begin?” Where Trotter calls for more intensive attention to buildings, Kwinter stresses the need to expand the boundaries of the architectural problem. A comment from David Ruy about disciplinary expertise in architecture prompts similarly divergent opinions.
