>Today online, I stumbled on a conversation portrait artist.
No, that’s not a typo. Flash Rosenberg is an artist-in-Residence at the New York Public Library who draws in real time and shapes conversations and interviews into a visual connection.
She says that she gives “visual, unifying fluency to conversations that are otherwise too complex and fragmented in today’s digital world to be universally understood.” She’s all about communication but in a creative way. Her drawings are filmed with voices of the conversations or interviews in the background.
“Our conversations in society are changing so much, too, because of email and Twitter and the Internet. When we talk and when we don’t talk, when we understand what somebody else is saying and when we don’t —these kinds of disconnects are all so common now,” she says.
Rosenberg’s art results in a unique and delightful connection. See for yourself her production, “Who is Mark Twain?” And after that, click on the link to her “Tribute to George Carlin.” You’ll love it!
