Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky, is the ultimate creator: he’s a composer, a DJ, a multimedia artist, an editor, an author, and the curator of one of Flipboard’s most interesting magazines, “Semantic Infiltration.”
He’s completely immersed in environmental and social issues and creates art to press those issues into the public consciousness. We talked to him for episode 03 of “The Art of Curation” podcast. Here’s the show, plus other writers, thinkers and artists cited during the conversation.VIEW PAUL'S PICKS ON FLIPBOARD
