Every moment counts when you’re performing.

When Amanda Palmer was first starting out in music, her day job was as a street artist. During hours spent standing on a crate as The Eight Foot Bride she offered flowers and eye contact to those who dropped money at her feet. From moments on the street to moments onstage and offstage, from nights couch surfing to crowd surfing, Palmer has continually sought time for these intimate interactions between herself and her fans. Together with Brainwave fellow and neuroscientist David Eagleman, Palmer will explore time and how it relates to these integral interactions, in a life that balances somewhere between musician, performance artist, community builder, and now mother.
