Considering Art Podcast – Philipp Humm, business mogul turned artist

Sculptor, painter and photographer Philipp Humm tells how he became a business man having failed to get into art school, how he kept up his art during a glittering career in the high tech industry until the urge to become a full-time artist overcame him, and how he has updated and condensed Goethe’s Faust to address modern issues, in particular the concern that our seemingly insatiable desire for technological innovation, most notably in Artificial Intelligence (AI), threatens the very survival of the human race.
