Shing Yin Khor is a multi-dimensional artist, almost literally. They’re a cartoonist, illustrator, sculptor, and installation and experimental artist. They work across many media, technology, and ideas. They say they’ve entered a new phase of their career over the last five years, and we talk about their work, empathy, and how they got here.
This episode is brought to you in part by Disruptor-level patrons Chris Higgins, Marcin Wichary, Kim Ahlberg, Pete Burtis, and Jon Mitchell. You can become a patron of the show on a one-time or recurring basis, and get rewards like an exclusive enamel pin and being thanked in this fashion!
The New Disruptors is also back on the virtual air thanks to Glowforge, a “3D laser printer” that can cut wood, paper, acrylic, leather, and more, and engrave metal, stone, glass, and other materials. It’s a laser printer for depth. Listeners to New Disruptors can get a discount from $100 to $500 on a new Glowforge, depending on the model. (Some terms and conditions apply.)
