Much has been written in recent years of the spate of superb writing for television across many series, but the leaps forward in visual artistry are equally remarkable. Amidst the context of fervid change and experimentation in television, what then is happening to the medium as a centerpiece of visual culture? How are the artistry, politics, craft, economics, and culture of television changing? What does artistic production design for contemporary television entail? This public discussion will aim to answer these and more questions, as Emmy Award-winning production designer Michael Wylie discusses his work across numerous series.
