In this installment of Studio Sessions I interview Matt Hinçman about his work.
Matt Hinçman is an associate professor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. Primarily creating work that exists in the public sphere, he typically creates art objects and interventions by providing a slight twist on a familiar object. Several of his interventions surreptitiously incorporate people into the experience without them knowing that it is intended to be considered art at all, and if you’ve picked up any odd coins off the sidewalk lately there’s a chance that you’ve already experienced his work for yourself.
Listen as he discusses several different projects he’s done and where his ideas for his works come from.
*Please excuse the reduced clarity of the recording in this interview, as recording outdoors created a bit of interference in the process. Although the sound is not as sharp as usual, most of the episode should be easily understandable and the ideas that Hincman discusses are worth the listen.
