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

I’m currently leasing my desk to some physicists working on entropy. I tidy every so often and get angry phone calls. I like the connections that disorder makes me produce. And its harder for serendipity to function when you’re hedging against thing getting lost.

Where do you normally get your things?

The internet, the dumpster at the Japanese retirement home where my grandma lives…

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

I’m surrounded by a lot of old and unique things that I really treasure. But I’d have to say that I’m really attached to an old glass stamp with my last name in Kanji. My great-grandfather used it to do his banking and official business.
