On this episode of Radio Art Center, which aired September 5, 2015, Des Moines Art Center Director of Marketing and PR Christine Doolittle sits down with artist Laurel Nakadate to talk about the Art Center's major exhibition Laurel Nakadate: Strangers and Relations. The exhibition, which opened to the public on Saturday, September 5, is the first time this body of work has been shown in a museum. 

"Strangers and Relations raises any number of questions regarding how we define ourselves and others. Our DNA is the most elemental, individualized facet of our existence. Nakadate takes that unique code and visualizes its potential for communication across digital media—a world as vast and infinite as the genetic code is unimaginably microscopic. Her process, from research to cross-country travel for photos hoots to the finalized photographs, bridges distances both actual and metaphorical. To contact her photo subjects, she reaches into the dark of cyberspace, and the resulting images are elegant, eerie interpretations of the tenuousness of the first meeting of any two strangers." - Laura Burkhalter, Associate Curator at the Des Moines Art Center
