This block we got to see Laurie Anderson, which gives me confidence in professional storytelling. She is amazing and manipulates thoughts with images and sounds. I really enjoyed her talks and most of all her video work (Dog Playing Piano).
A major take away for me is when she talks about how she was never asked what her strongest medium was, but the art she produces is made from the medium that helps projects her concepts.
This helps me refocus myself and the vision, for myself, as an artist.
