Each week we speak with a new artist, curator, technologist, AI, collector, innovator, about the ever-changing relationship between art and tech.
Paul Golding's extensive technical expertise coupled with his philosophical, problem-solving approach has enabled him to work on a variety of projects, with companies like Motorola, O2 UK, Acision, McLaren Applied Technologies, Navteq, Telefonica, Art.com Inc and Prosper Inc. A visionary with the know-how, skills, and respect to pickup any project, we ask Paul how he became interested in the arts. In this episode, Paul discusses his work in understanding and deconstructing people's aesthetic tastes, the challenges of selling art using e-commerce, and his take on the " “I’ll know it when I see it” approach many buyers take when selecting art for their space.
