Joining me on the show this week Nicholas de Monchaux. He is the author of a fascinating book called Spacesuit: Fashioning Apollo. The book chronicles how the Playtex company -- known for making bras and girdles --- beat out traditional military contractors for the job of designing the spacesuit that Neil Armstrong would eventually wear on the surface of the moon. Nicholas sets this story in the larger context of technology's relationship to the human body touching on everything from androids and Christian Dior to sci-fi and city planning.
This week I spoke with Andrea Polli, a digital media artist who works with science and technology to create public  installations, video and sound works called "sonifications".  Andrea's work deals heavily with climate and weather, so for her projects she frequently collaborates with atmospheric and other scientists to collect data, conduct interviews and make field recordings that she turns into her work. Andrea is an associate professor of fine arts and engineering at the University of New Mexico, and the co-author of Far Field: Digital Culture, Climate Change and the Poles which will be published in September. I spoke with Andrea over the phone about the intersections of science and art, the seven weeks she  spent in Antarctica, and the projects she has on the horizon.

I keep rocking, waiting for someone to tell me to stop... But nobody ever does.

Today on the show my guests are artists Boris Rasin and Kenny Komer. Their posters, sculptures and interactive projects engage viewers on in unexpected ways on the streets of NYC, promoting discussion, and encouraging us to look more closely at our day to day environment and the ways we interact with public space.
