Episode 2: Elizabeth Tubergen


Today’s episode is with an old friend, Elizabeth Tubergen [8], who created the 2021 Public Art Commission *Soft Wait*. The conversation dove into the sources of inspiration for the work, Tubergen's relationship with Long Island Sound, and the emergence of *Soft Wait* as a form of radical flatness. She also discusses her work, home renovations, and the brilliance of the late Ursula K. Le Guin. This one isn’t to be missed!
