It seems as if I spend most of my life thinking about things that don't exist. The rest of my time is then spent trying to put those imagined things into other peoples heads, in one way or another.
I like circumventing the conventional distinctions we make between work, art, and play, in an effort to bring them into alignment as one single experience called 'being alive'.
At it's simplest, I feel like we all just need to get excited and make things.
Everything else follows on from there.
