How did you get into debt?
How does your economic reality effect your art?
Like most artists I want to make my work full time, even if I do not get paid for it. Reality is that I stand up more hours of the week as a guard ( because we are forbidden chairs), then I do physically making my work. However, I am very optimist and seize every opportunity to think up new ideas for future work. My economic reality has pushed me out of my comfort zone and challenges me to work in different ways.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Who knows. My debt has challenged me to work in ways that I normally wouldn't. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone so to speak. I no longer believe in the traditional artist studio practice, but a more nomadic and at times collaborative practice. I am in constant search fro new ways of working that do not hinder my creativity or vision, without having a physical space.
