VNDL: Describe your work/process.

AD: Daydream, have a drink, procrastinate, dream some more, act on impulse.



What have you been up to recently (trips, projects, work)?

I’ve been living in Berlin for almost 3 years now and there’s still so much left to see and do here. A while ago a friend from L.A. came to visit and I finally got to go on a couple of excursions that I’ve been longing for, breaking into an abandoned hospital complex in the forest and visiting a beautiful old graveyard in the south-west outskirts of town. Last year I was working in Shanghai on a film project and it was incredibly interesting experiencing China for the first time.

Have any advice for other creative’s/aspiring artists?

In the words of old Joe Hill: Work and pray, live on hay, you’ll get pie in the sky when you die.

What are you currently listening to/reading/watching?

Listening to “BEAK>>”, reading Pierre Louÿs “Trois Filles de Leur Mère” (Three Daughters of their Mother) and watching Fassbinder “Welt am Draht” (World on a Wire).

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I tend to live day by day and hand to mouth which makes it difficult to do any predictions. I hope I’m somewhere (else?) doing something …at least.


Where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for?

You know this state when you’ve had more than a couple of drinks and you’re thinking this could only get better if I have just one more shot…? That’s where! And to answer question B: Randy P Martin (on Flickr) shoots some amazing landscapes. Sandy Kim is always great.
