Could you describe your work?
Not very well. I don’t have internet access besides my phone at the
moment. The problem is that I nearly cut off my thumb which has now
lost all feeling and now it iis hard to type on the phone.

What are you referring to? What are the references enclosed in your work?
Poetry, the world, love, death, my idiot friends, jealousy, self
loathing, David Bowie, those useless individuals who despite their
ability to stave off their own boredom with « creative pursuits » are
nevertheless as boring as those bored individuals with equal means for
leisure, money, the art world, sex, Heidegger, Freud, ruthless
ambition, betrayal, melencholia, the city, homo sacer, pithy
withdrawal, pointless regionalism and group identification stemming
from an inability to assume the role of one’s own desire, social
anxiety, capitalism, Raymond Roussel, Robert Walser, Jack Smith,
misogyny, matriarchy, Bohemia, gifts, extortion, altruistic self-
promotion and egoistic self-annhilation.

How would you like your artwork to be red or felt by the audience? What would be the best reading of it (if there is one)?
The audience does not exist. It is a projection of the ego, a big
other whose appearance should be acknowledged and then dismissed.

What is the most intimate part of this artwork?
The personal items embedded in the pieces. Although these too are
universal.
