Truth or Dare with Steve Locke

In artcore journal’s “Truth or Dare” series developed for the artcore (b)log participants choose between two groupings of statement questions. Contributors can answer Truth, which directly poses; Past? Present? and Future? or Dare, which bluntly asks; Regrets? Status? and Dreams? The interviews aspire to open up candid platforms for cultural thinkers to contemplate and respond to a broad range of complex, imaginative, personal, controversial, and/or analytical, etc. forces of time and space that correlate with their own “Truth or Dare” experiences in a myriad of contemporary art practices.

Steve Locke was interviewed by Gregory Eltringham for artcore journal’s Truth or Dare
series at his studio in Boston, MA, Sunday, April 28, 2013 at 6:11 p.m.
