Short Film: Stephen Lapthisophon
Coffee, Seasonal Fruit, Root Vegetables, and "Selected Poems"
Stephen Lapthisophon is a Dallas-based contemporary artist who happens to be legally blind.
This video was done as a promotional piece for a "Concentrations" show he held at the Dallas Museum of Art.
Lapthisophon's work is extremely challenging and difficult, but as a person he's as accessible and down to earth as anyone can be. We decided to do the "anti" artist interview. We held it at Jimmy's which is an Italian grocer and deli in East-Dallas. Stephen wanted to talk about old cheese and experimental jazz music over meatball sandwiches.
One of my favorite interviews I did at the DMA.
