Making Meaning. A podcast by Ruth Singer exploring the meaning behind what we make.
One of the things I love most about my working life is talking to other artists and creative people about what they do and why. I love delving into the stories behind the work, hearing about what matters to artists and how they choose to share their thoughts through their creative practice. I am fascinated by research-focussed work and what goes on in the creative brain to develop artistic or creative work from concepts, ideas, research and thinking. The artwork I love most has a complex, often personal set of stories and narratives behind it, and often we don’t talk so much about those deeper meanings.
Over the last year of isolation, I’ve really missed conversations with creative people about why they make what they make. I haven’t been able to visit other studios, to chat over tea about what matters most, about what inspires me, about what story we might be exploring at the moment. I love bouncing ideas off other creative minds. So I have created a podcast so I have the excuse to talk to artists and creative people whom I admire and who have fascinating stories to tell about the meaning behind their making.
The first series of Making Meaning is in development at the moment and the first episode will come out in late May 2021. I’m aiming to make 10 episodes and most of them will be conversations with other creatives with maybe one or two solo episodes of me talking about my own work and inspirations. If you are already excited and want to help make this happen, you can pledge your support through my Patreon membership.
Once it’s ready, I’ll share more about the podcast and upcoming episodes as well as how and where to listen. In the meantime, pop in your email address below to get my Studio Stories direct to your inbox.
