Interview: Ursula Johnson
In an issue of No More Potlucks, I interview Ursula Johnson about her recent work and working processes. Here’s a sneak peak of some of her ArtSpots media, the remixed interview I did with material concerning Ursula during my dissertation project, and a couple of excerpts from Ursula’s performances. You’ll also find audio clips from the December 2013 interview I did with her. Check out much more about Ursula’s news and work on her own website.
