In terms of your things, what does your space (studio/office/living area) look like?

I’ve got two black desks that are positioned in an L shape. One is against the window and the other coming out into the room. Then there is a wall where I hang stuff up to look at or to paint things at. Mostly they’re pretty disorganized looking, but at the same time i pretty much know where everything is. Papers all over, small books and cameras, pencils, pens, x-acto blades, a cutting mat, computer. I think about every week and a half I clean the desks and then put things into organized piles. Then in about three days things get back to normal.

Where do you normally get your things?

I don’t think I get that many things. Especially since I know I’m in Sweden temporarily. I don’t want to collect too many things that I’ll have to move back with later.

I do get things sometimes from second hand stores the art stores, the recycling room (they have this room here that’s for recycling things and people throw away a lot of stuff. JBL speakers, desk lamps are some good finds) and I like finding interesting things from outside.

What is your prize possession/”thing”/collectible/tool?

I generally don’t really have favorites, but I have a pot / vase at home I really like with a green lava glaze from Adam Silverman.
