How did you get the idea for PeopleMatter?
Nic Rad PeopleMatter was the result of staring at the unfinished novels piling up next to my laptop with many browser windows opened on paused YouTube clips. I had endless lists of authors I wanted to read and people I wanted to email and thoughts I wanted to complete.
Instead of completing them I’d open another window and engage in casual foreplay with some other set of ideas.
My internet habits were mirroring my analog habits. Authors begat journalists begat friends begat celebrities begat bloggers and all turned to avatars and twitter streams. Faces were becoming little graphic symbols and placeholders for whole philosophies.
I thought this might be true for others. That’s what I wanted to paint. -Escape Into Life, April 17th, 2010 (read more)
