Don't miss this one. Every so often another shoe drops, as Wright is given a close look by a new set of eyes (in this case by a long-time observer). The questioner doesn't get in the way until late in the interview, leaving the subject to describe portions of Wright's career in depth, including an illuminating take on "organic," and presenting new or refined ideas about the meaning---and, finally, questioning the need for a "meaning" ?---in the work.

Kevin Nute is a name to remember. His analyses are spot on; a video version of Grant Hildebrand.
I agree that the nonsense about cultural appropriation is counterproductive, and an example of missing the point of creativity entirely.
I have never cared for the term "organic," but Nute defines it precisely, and makes sense of it.

Yes. He even manages to touch on the "democratic" piece of Wright's kant, I think---though I can't quite recall the particulars.
