From the vault: Erica Prince on “architectural utopias”

sponsored

[Erica Prince is a graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art. She spoke with us two years ago about originally planning to be a research-based artist, and about her love for “architectural utopias”–which makes sense given her brand-new, dollhouse-based exhibit at Vox Populi! — the Artblog editors]

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.
