Years ago i used to draw. I was quite obsessed with my own world and expressing it through pictures and photographs and i loved watching movies, still do.
(giraffe)I have rather fond memories of it and when i come across my old markers and pictures i sometimes regret that i stopped doing it, most of my pictures i did 8-9 years ago. Sitting in my cold Berlin flat by myself.
(self portrait with dog)Just being obsessed with cute things, things with eyes. I didn't take any drugs either, i just like colours. And i liked the texture of certain papers and the weight of it.
(teddy bear)Now i sew. I like the more tactile aspect of working with fabric, it's not just visual. I like that fabric is more sturdy and that you can get it wet and it gets back into shape again.
Not that I've ever gotten my pictures wet.
(self portrait)What things did you like to do that you are no longer doing? Do you resent them or think of them rather fondly? Why have you moved on?
