I’d like to thank GEEX for inviting me to collaborate for this series. Which is a mixture of an interview and lecture, using my experience as a pathway to the continual learning and understanding of plasma. Which has yet to have a comprehensive resource for guidance, and while that can and has been frustrating, it’s also been fun finding various sources to tackle a subject.
In this collaboration I’d like to thank the Director, Helen Lee for starting the conversation, Assistant Director, Emily Leach, whom you’ve got hear pop in during the break and at the end, and The Graphic Designer and Web Manager, Ben Orozco, who will co-hosting for the remainder of the series.
Even in this first step, I find myself taking notes in adopting a more organized approach with feedback to improve the flow of the podcast, including solidifying a release date for the podcast, which will be every 3rd Thursday. This collaborative series will be released October, December, February, and April.
Lastly , I'd like to thank Pittsburgh Glass Center for supporting me as a place of research and inspiration, as well as encouraging me to pursue this project, and the Plasma Art Alliance where I have access to the well of knowledge and connect me to some amazing and supportive people.
Please consider support the 4-part series buy donating to GEEX Fundraiser!
Feel free to share, comment, and subscribe. And as always be safe, be healthy, and be Strong, and I’ll See you next time!
