How did you get into debt?
Taking out student loans for graduate school
How does your economic reality effect your art?
It does at time fuel my practice for I have come to critique the art institution and their students on their wastefulness of materials. It has also affected my art by the actual monetary status in using such materials that are considered waste. Also it has affected the choices I have made in choosing my materials.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
It would look more different in the sense of scale and in the theme of the ephemeral. My art would probably be much more grandiose and colorful than the limited access it is now.
