Erica Prince talks here of her love of mid-century modern objects, many of which become raw material for her sculptural installations. The Canadian-born artist also talks about growing up with a xerox machine in her house when she was a kid and using it for art projects. Her interest in the cosmos also comes from her childhood, as you will hear in this podcast interview.
