We traveled to Los Angeles to hang out with MOCA Director Philippe Vergne at his Hollywood home. Philippe is a dry, funny guy and he and his wife Sylvia Chivaratanond were wonderful hosts. Philippe on driving:

“I drive to work very early down Sunset Boulevard, and I’m in my little bubble listening to French radio. Something about looking out and seeing Los Angeles but hearing French voices and opinions, and it being so early here but late in the day there—it creates a strange compression of time and culture that I really enjoy.”
