This week on the show, a conversation with artist Melissa Brown. Melissa's  kaleidoscopic  prints and collages  draw on  graphics from  lottery tickets, playing cards and currency  to explore questions of value and fantasy. I dropped by her studio to talk about dumpster diving for lottery tickets, something called a"Hexahexaflexagon" and what it's like to make a woodcut print with a steamroller. Hexahexaflexagon, 2009, Two tesselated prints installed, Woodcut on hand dyed paper with stencil,  64 in x 192 in $2485 in Discarded Scratch Off Tickets, 28 in x 28in 00:00 Thomas Intro 00:47 Melissa Brown Interview pt. 1 04:46 Myth - Brilliant Colors 06:41 Melissa Brown Interview pt. 2 11:43 36 Inches High - Nick Lowe 14:26 Melissa Brown Interview pt. 3 11:36 Part Time Punks - Television Personalities 20:13 Melissa Brown Interview pt. 4 23:40 Vacation - Beach Fossils 27:10 Melissa Brown Interview pt. 5 30:50 I Hate The 80s - The Vaselines 34:18 Melissa Brown Interview pt. 6 38:42 Lulu's Lips - Grass Widow 39:10 Finish
