Los Angeles–based artist Jed Lind is inspired by everything from Buckminster Fuller’s utopian legacy to the provisional architecture of coastal societies. In this brief video, Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes offers his thoughts on Lind’s second solo show at Toronto’s Jessica Bradley Art and Projects. Along the way, Lind’s series of new works prompt thoughts on the boundaries between person and planet, mark and mirage, and idea and ideology. (Running time 2 minutes 51 seconds)

  • Marla Hlady

    In the most general sense, I find sound art fun to make but hard to like. It can be densely theoretical and conjure up visions of unmetred noise, percussion or found sound. These aesthetics pervade in this continually experimental medium, often taking cues from musique concrète and John Cage.
