How did you get into debt?
Living off of credit cards. Owning one preowned car for two adults to share. Emergency house repairs. Mortgage on an overinflated house bought in the bubble. Life expenses & bills. Paying taxes on public & social programs I don't participate in nor directly benefit from, but am required by law to contribute towards.
How does your economic reality effect your art?
It's changed my eating habits which effect the stamina, health, and focus I place towards my art. It's forced me to take extra odd jobs which eats up time I should be dedicating towards my art. It's forced me to sculpt with cheaper materials, or no materials at all. It's forced the narrative of my art towards a darker, bitter tone.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
