11/1*, Vol. 12: Euglossine
#2. What is always worth the price?
Tooth brush. Totally almost destroyed my gums with a cheap one. Never again.
#4. It’s not working: try something new or persist?
Persist, its hard for me to give up on ideas. Even bad ones.
#6. When does a piece fail? When does a piece succeed?
It fails when you have said nothing, though saying nothing intentionally says a lot. Redoing what has already been done is very banal for everyone. Its a win when you have expressed your hearts intention and it makes others think of inspired new concepts.
#7. Pasta or sushi?
Pasta! I like sushi but its always leaves me hungry and broke.
#8. You can bring one thing with you when you go (interpret that how you will), it must be inanimate. What is it?
Guitar. I defined my personality on that instrument and its brought me a lot of good.
#12. You own a store that only sells one type of object. What is it?
#13. What famous artwork do you like least of all?
I really despise Alex Grey.
#18. Who would you like to see but not speak to?
#21. What is your favourite plant?
The cycad. A primitive fern. A real dinosaur
#22. What is your favourite type of bread?
#23. What object or tool is perfect?
I watched a primitive technology show on youtube and this person cast clay pots out of mud. I think the pot is the perfect tool.
*I’m sending 23 questions to artists, designers and musicians and asking them to answer 11. I think these questions give revealing answers, especially regarding creative work. Here are their responses. As these are interviews I’m publishing their answers as they are, fully appreciating that English may not be their first or preferred written language. Thanks to all the participants.
