Episode: Live Culture with Martha Willette Lewis- Episode 19- With a Paddle

This Month I am in conversation with Artist and Canoeist Scott Schuldt. As we make our way along the Scantic River in CT we discuss his practice, which involves specimens and artifacts found on his river trips, and the special treasure hunt with them that he has created for this year's Game-On themed City-Wide-Open-Studios which happens throughout October In New Haven.

Each day several lucky players could win their artifact, beautifully contained in one of Scott's unique specimen boxes to show off and protect their treasure.Open Studios and Scott's game are free and open to the public.Additionally, for the past several years Scott has been working as Facilities Coordinator for City-Wide-Open-Studios' Alternative Space, acting as engineer for the many installations that take place in The Goffe Street Armory.

In addition to his specimen boxes. Scott's oeuvre also includes hand-carved and painted paddles, intricate bead-work, and an ongoing blog recording his over 700 canoe trips documented in words and pictures. Our voyage was included in his blog: The View From The Canoe and can be read here

Peppered throughout the interview are bits of river-themed music- of which there was so much to choose from, plus references to our two mutually favorite river movies: Apocalypse Now and The African Queen. Don't miss this final summer adventure in audio....
