Broken Screen is a manifesto for navigating the future of communication. In twenty-six candid conversations, this book gives insight into the personal thoughts and motivations of leading artists, filmmakers, and architects as they discuss art-making in an increasingly fragmented world. Drawing on a rich array of cultural references and personal anecdotes, Broken Screen illuminates the ways in which the moving image and the shifting nature of perception provide pivotal sources of inspiration across a range of creative disciplines. With its focus on alternatives to linear storytelling, this book offers a dialogue about ways to advance creative expression. Book jacket.

I got this book when I was studying in nyc last year, it is highly recommended, and I personally think this book offers the opportunity to get different insights of these 26 artists; not from internet, not from rigid or literal writing; but from simple and unedited records of conversations. Big ideas always come from small talk or moments in lives. Pictures are quite good in this book.
