Guest: Peter Lunenfeld
What is our Los Angeles of today? There is so much more than meets the eye in LA. Susan speaks to Peter Lunenfeld, author of the urban portrait of LA called City at the Edge of Forever. Lunenfeld weaves together the alchemical city’s art, architecture and design; juxtaposes its entertainment and literary histories; and moves from restaurant kitchens to recording studios to ultrasecret research and dev labs. Peter Lunenfeld is the vice chair of UCLA’s Department of Design Media Arts and a faculty member in the Urban and Digital Humanities programs. He writes about the ways in which art, design and technology intertwine.
