David Lynch @ BAM 4/29/2014

I love smoke. I love fire. I love metal. I love glass. I love plaster. I love bricks. And I love nature going to work on those things. In the old days, in the 1800s, they started building the most beautiful factories that were like cathedrals. I’ve visited many of these factories and photographed them. For me, it’s like walking into a dream – a dream of textures, shapes and mood…. The factories, more often than not, today are very boring. – David Lynch @ BAM [via Rolling Stone]

It probably goes without saying that David Lynch is a fascinating guy. Having made some of the weirdest, most indelible cinematic images of the last 40 years, the director (and musician/cartoonist/meditation enthusiast) is a true iconoclast. Last night (4/29) at BAM was a rare opportunity to hear him speak in public, where he was in conversation with New York Public Library’s Paul Holdengräber.

The freewheeling gabfest touched on NYC (he’s overcoming a fear of the subway that dates back to the ’50s), his love of cardboard, diners and other subjects. He also talked quite a bit about music, sharing his love of Jimi Hendrix, and Kanye West’s “Blood on the Leaves” (“so minimal, so powerful but at the same time so beautiful”). He also gave a shout out to composer and frequent collaborator Angelo Badalamenti who was in the audience.

For more on Lynch’s appearance at BAM last night, Rolling Stone has a full report. More pictures from David Lynch @ BAM below..
