The Grey Eminences
Spark visits with several of the Bay Area's most influential artists, elders who have been working in their art form for decades and are continuing to teach and work long past retirement age. First, make acquaintance with Pauline Oliveros, the internationally renowned pioneer in electronic and improvisational music, who continues to perform and teach her musical philosophy of deep listening. Next meet David Ireland, one of California's most important and critically acclaimed artists working in the challenging arena of conceptual and installation art. And finally, visit with Bella Feldman as she creates what she calls "anxious objects," metal and blown-glass sculptures inspired by the Gulf War and the current conflicts in the Middle East.
