In 2013, the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington DC invited me to speak about what artists and scientists have in common. Last year, I gave a talk at TEDxGeneva about why imitation is good for artists, and the TED experience inspired me to write this book.
-—The Kirk Reeves mural—-
Kirk was a Portland street performer and a friend. He passed away in 2012, and last year I painted a 10 by 38 foot mural portrait of him on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon. This video about the making of this memorial was created by filmmaker Ifanyi Bell for Oregon Public Broadcasting.
