A Conversation with Artist Simon Stålenhag

Audio Episode 08
This special podcast episode is an in-depth conversation with award-winning Swedish artist and storyteller Simon Stålenhag. Simon is the creator of narrative art books like Tales From the Loop, Things From the Flood, and The Electric State. We discuss what it’s like for a small artist to be courted by the Hollywood machine. We dig into the meaning and messages in dystopian science fiction. And we talk about the negative implications of AI art generators.
