Author, screenwriter, and filmmaker JF Martel and I discuss weirdness, the surreal quality of experience, art arising from the primordial or from the imaginal realm, why society attempts to bury the weird or chaotic beneath normality and conventionality, Stranger Things, Twin Peaks, Jaws, the daimonic, dreams, and the ways that art can disrupt and awaken, in a conversation that centers around his book, Reclaiming Art in the Age of Artifice, which is about the nature and power of art. JF hails from Ottawa, Ontario, and his screen work includes French and English-language documentary series and features focused on culture and the arts. J.F.'s writings on art, culture and philosophy have appeared in Reality Sandwich, Metapsychosis, The Finch, Disinfo, and other online magazines. He is the co-host of the Weird Studies podcast along with Phil Ford.
