GREAT video of Callie Curry aka Swoon speaking at TED talks in Brooklyn. She shares about her work and wanting to change the world and her environment and how she did exactly that:
"I wanted to become part of something larger than myself, I wanted to embrace the world and become a part of the world...looking back on it I think that my response to that desire was quite literal, I basically started making drawings and sort of gluing them to the world, to walls and things..."
It's so inspiring to hear her speak in her own words about how she made/makes things happen. Curry is a tremendous example of an artist that did, and continues to do it her way. She has most certainly set her path ablaze and I am continually more and more excited to see where she winds up.
