I wonder if the American audience requires more obvious explanations than Singh’s European audience? I’d guess so.
I wonder if he likes Barry Yourgrau.
For some people (the curator in this case), “Um” seems to be the loudest word they say into the microphone
I agree with Singh, Americans say “like” too often
And I also agree, writers should have a limited number for using the word “suddenly.” I thought it might be a good exercise for me to watch a video where something quick happens and I have to explain it without using the word “suddenly” or “all of a sudden.” The prose that come from this could be of an elongated moment described poetically, as if reading about a slow-motion clip.
I also wished that the interviewer focused more on letting the artist talk. She interrupted strangely and often, drawing too much attention to irrelevant moments.
