Q&A with Issue 44 featured artist Daniel Gordon:
Jodie Vicenta Jacobson: When did you know you wanted to be an artist?
Daniel Gordon: Without going into too many details I went to an extremely experimental high school that utilized a form of gestalt therapy as a means to teach emotional growth, along with a more traditional curriculum (the school was founded by a real San Francisco 60’s Radical). My first experience in a group setting where kids my own age were talking about some super serious, really personal stuff, and then using physical activity to engage with their emotions was completely off the wall wild! But it drastically altered the course of my life, and opened me up to new possibilities—of which being an artist was one.
