I had the pleasure of seeing a couple of wonderful pieces from this year’s Animation graduates at the Royal College of Art. In particular – and one to watch – is the highly talented director and editor Magali Charrier who worked as an editor on photographer Tim Hetherington’s three-screen audio-visual piece, Sleeping Soldiers.

In the podcasr, Charrier talks to me about using the Canon 7D and the influence of Francesca Woodman. Follow this link, 12 Sketches on the Impossibility of Being Still, to download the audio interview -it’s just over 10 minutes long.

If you didn’t get to the Tate Modern’s recent three-day symposium Agency and Automatism: Photography as Art since the 1960s (10-12 June), don’t worry. You can still get a flavour of the event by tuning into philosopher Nigel Warburton’s podcast, Thomas Demand –  Absence and Presence. There’s also a link on his Art and Allusion website to the Demand image he discusses. The talk is about 20 mins long.
