How did you get into debt?
Living expenses before and during school. School
How does your economic reality effect your art?
The pressure of having debt makes me step back from many projects that I have in my mind. The anxiety of debt avoid me to think widely on my projects. The debt also might destroy or blurred the creativity.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
yes, for sure, I would more focus on art and impacts of it rather than getting worried of how I should pay my rent. I could have studio, use better materials and think wide enough to also support my community since I am social engaged artist.
