Molly Crabapple - Art and the network

Molly Crabapple

Artist

From The Conference August 19, 2014


"A sketchpad can go places cameras cannot look."

For Molly Crabapple, art is the discipline of seeing. Together with her sketchpad, she has been able to see things cameras couldn't - portraying Guantanamo Bay prisoners, Occupy Wall Street protesters and Syrian refugees. 

Molly talks of the importance of drawing in a networked world, where there are more images than ever before. She also challenges us as listeners to draw. Because even though it can't change the world, it might make us see it a bit differently.
