Can a song just come to life as whole? Or do ideas come in fragments, and you have to flip them, one by one, as pieces of a larger puzzle? Invited by BBC Arts, director David Lynch and singer and visual artist Patti Smith met in Paris to talk about their creative methods and sources of inspiration.
In this video, the two multi-talented artists engage in a stimulating conversation about their work, including references to Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks and Pussy Riots. They also discuss how art can tap into the public consciousness, and each shares their love for an ‘imperfect’ world.
