Caveat Magister Talks about Turning Your Life Into Art, Lessons in Psychomagic from the San Francisco Underground

Super Suz talks with Caveat Magister, Burning Man’s philosopher laureate. He’s the author of The Scene That Became Cities: what Burning Man philosophy can teach us about building better communities, and Turn Your Life Into Art: lessons in Psychomagic from the San Francisco Underground. His newest book is a synthesis of the San Francisco underground art scene and explains how they create highly personal and potentially transformative, designed experiences for participants. Corporations are trying to do this too with marketing and branding, however, Caveat explains why it’s rag-tag artists who have the most potential for psychomagic.
