This week we’ll get to know a member from the group Backpod. Michael Peters is one of three exceptionally talented artist to dedicate his creative life by using his artistic expression as a tool for the greater good. This video will give us a brief introduction into the cast of Backpod, plus through out the week I will ask Michael Peters some questions about his experiences with backpod, and art itself.
Twilight Frequencies: Besides you, who else participates in Backpod, how did you link up with them?
Michael Peters: The Backpod team is made up of myself, Kari Foster, and Eva Nudd. While working in New York, Kari crossed paths with Eva. Eva was able to bring a international relations writing background into the work, rather than the art background of Kari and I – which is just what we needed! TEAM BACKPOD was born!
I think each of us bring a unique, yet relative perspective to the table. Eva is originally from Slovak Republic with a Masters Degree in International Relations specializing in Human Rights and International Law. Kari has a degree in Journalism concentration in Public Relations with a background in graphic/web design. Myself with a BFA in film and photography.
All very different, but each one makes up such a vital piece to the puzzle. Holding us together – our endless curiosity, and willingness to fall on our face a few times!
