Penny Slinger sits down with us to discuss multimedia as cross-fertilization, the changing fashions of art and digital collage, the danger of the addiction to “Like”s and the power in choosing our own worth, hidden artists, tantric book burnings, the expression of the feminine, and Frida Kahlo’s ruthless honesty.
