Laurie's Brainwave

Janna Levin, astrophysicist and writer. Laurie Anderson, multimedia artist and amateur anthropologist. A free-form public conversation between these two women with BRAINZ, recorded at the Rubin Museum of Art in 2010, as part of the 'Brainwave' series. What a treat.

Janna Levin is the author of 'How the Universe Got Its Spots', a book on spacetime, the universe and quantum theory. Laurie Anderson is NASA's first (and last) artist-in-residence.

Thanks to the magnificence of the world wide web, we (i. e. distant inferior forms of life) have access to this intriguing and hilarious exchange of thoughts-- in both audio and visual format. Hallelujah.
