The musician and artist, Laurie Anderson, suggests that all creatives should describe themselves as ‘multimedia artists’ because no-one knows what the hell it means. She wrote: “It’s so vague. No one can say, ‘Hey, how come you’re a jazz person, and you’re making a pop opera?
“Genres are for bins. ‘What bin should we put you in, so we that we can sell what you do?’ Ignore the bins.”
