Kim Stanley: Failing to Communicate

Interview with Kim Stanley
Conducted by James Grissom

Everything now is a button or a ribbon or a statement. It's silly, I think. Someone walks toward you with a ribbon and we are supposed to ask the meaning of the color, the placement, the commitment. Bumper stickers amuse me, as well. Ask me about something, they tease. Should I reach over and tap on the window of a moving car and ask them about their children or their cancer? The world has always been crazy, but now it's crazier much, much faster, and it's clearer how it's crazy. We are now failing to communicate with each other with such boldness and creativity.
