My studio is my autonomous zone.

What I do in one sentence: I build sound systems and all kind of other things.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: Because I don’t have time for that.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: That would be a mobile and emission free 30.000 watt sound system with its own built in hydrogen fuel cell power station.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Kahlil Joseph – I saw his work Fly Paper at the Soho House during the Gallery Weekend 2018 and was really intrigued by his improvisation skills. He fluedly moves between film, music and installation art and gets to a point with it.

I am afraid of hight.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: I actually like the idea of being buried more than being burned. Maybe because of my fear of hight. I like to be attached to the ground. If I would be burned I’d go up in the sky… no… I don’t need a tombstone. A tree would be fine… Words are very unnecessary… Enjoy the silence…
