Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a discussion with Justin Crowe. His current creative practice is split between designing functional ceramic wares and producing digital projects that exist solely online. In our interview we discuss his role in creating “The Selfie Arm”, a humorous critique of contemporary narcissism, which took on new meaning as it went viral on major media outlets CNN, MTV News, and The Huffington Post. For more information on Justin’s work visit www.justincrowestudio.com. Crowe is also the Director of Operations for the online ceramic publication CFILE. You can find out more about CFILE at www.cfileonline.org.
