This is the first in new series of 11 artist interviews I conducted earlier this year I’ve titled “a new space; artists and social media”. You can learn more about this project at http://artistsandsocialmedia.tumblr.com/
(there is some sound degradation in parts due to audio feedback. my apologies for this).
Oglander is an emerging artist who recently moved to Brooklyn, New York and in many ways represents the fulfilment of the promise of instant fame and recognition that social media holds for many artists. His project, Craigslist Mirrors (http://craigslistmirrors.com), was started in late 2013 and almost immediately found by renowned art critic Jerry Saltz (https://twitter.com/jerrysaltz) who posted links to it on his Twitter and Facebook accounts.
