1. What’s the best moment of your day.

The sunrise is always like a miracle, but instead of starting my day then, I usually go back to bed.

2. Why do you work as an artist?

It's in my head. I'd probably go crazy if it stayed there.

3. What films, concerts, exhibits, or books have left a lasting impression on you?

Zbigner Preisner's music, which came to me by accident and then introduced me to the films of Krzysztof Kieslowski.  

4. Where do you currently get ideas for your works?

Everywhere. Inside myself. In the way I live.

5. Which work(s) of art would you like to have in your possession?

Right now I don't want to own any of the pieces of art that I like and are important to me.

6. What do you do when you’re not occupied with art?

It's hard to separate the two; art is usually a parallel process to everything. But, if my head is really empty, then I suffer a bit.

7. Do you sleep a lot?

I usually sleep well and have entertaining dreams, unless I have insomnia.

8. Do you collect anything?

No.

9. What is one of the most important things in your studio?

This summer I'm really happy about the fan that my friend brought over.

10. What do you like to eat, and what don’t you like?

I really like caviar. I really don't like cakes with butter creams, whipped cream and layers of jam.

11. When you were a kid, what did you want to be?

I always used to think that I wanted to be a jeweler, like my grandmother's sister, Ella. But I recently found out that I copied this childhood memory from my older sister, who mentioned this profession in her kindergarten graduation essay.

12. Name three creative individuals, with whom you’d gladly spend an evening.

Ella, Valts and Nora.
