Products of the Mind Episode 8: Exploring the Puzzles of Fine Art and Jiu-Jitsu with Joshua Krause
Welcome to Episode 8 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with Joshua Krause.
What is art? Can art be anything? Are “creative professionals” artists? When is the best time to be creative? Joshua gives us his answer to these questions and much more.
We also talk about what’s happening to the art world; Joshua Tree; Death Metal; and that “fighting, struggling, joint-breaking, soul-testing, spirit-breaking, humbling, “mother-effer of a puzzle” known as jiu-jitsu.
How is jiu-jitsu a puzzle? What role does the ego play in jiu-jitsu and art? What happens during ego death? Listen in for Joshua’s take on these questions and more.
A few of the many things Joshua talked about in this episode include:
- DJ Shadow
- A Tribe Called Quest
- Lurker of Chalice and Leviathan
- VI’s De Praestigiis Angelorum
- AKHLYS’ The Dreaming I
- Deathspell Omega
- Joshua Tree National Park
- The Integratron
Here are a few examples of Joshua’s work from his series “Take Time…” All are book parts collage.
