How did you get into debt?
Going to college and having credit cards.
How does your economic reality effect your art?
I can't afford studio space. I can't afford to travel. I can't afford to purchase materials unless I use my credit card. I find myself using what is available around me at work, on the side of the road, free on Craigslist, hand-me-downs from family and friends, etc. The objects themselves are loaded with significance; I just put it in a different context. I guess the situation contributes to the meaning of the work.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
