In front of two computers, somewhere between Detroit and Marseille, towards the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Concordia University, and Université de Provence, Corina Reynolds and Vency Yun decided to sit down in front of their Skype accounts and talk about everything related to their MFA experience. There were giggles, moments where thoughts fleeted away, but on the whole they talked about: their worries their life, their expectations, their practices, their studios, their virtual communities, and their potential life after the MFA. These videos gives you a shimmer into the life and opinions behind the walls of two art institutions and the people who reside in it. Enjoy!
