Renowned Canadian artist Alex McLeod chats with Tammy about the relationships between nature and technology, fashion and art, and how the physical and virtual realms sometimes intertwine. McLeod discusses the learning curve of expanding his practice from a decade of prints and video to include 3-dimensional work, and shares his optimism about this strange time we’re in and the new, innovative art that can come out of it.
