What is your ideal office?
When is the last time you were caught off guard?
First thing this morning when I turned on the news. I need to stop doing that. America is on fire, so I should have breakfast first, brace myself for the dystopian parade.
What disgusts you?
What is your weapon of choice?
Weapons scare me and I don’t want to think about it.
How do you heal a broken heart?
Everyone says “time.”
What is your most prized or sentimental item of clothing?
I don’t have one—things get lost or soiled on the road anyway, and all the best things I’ve worn have been borrowed.
Where do you feel most at peace?
Wherever, as long as I’m asleep.
If you could have any part of your body cast in bronze, what would it be?
This amazing hourglass waistline.
What is your favorite word in the Japanese language?
切ない “Setsunai” There’s no precise english translation.
What are the best and worst aspects of fame?
I’m not famous so I wouldn’t know, but Jodie Foster once said that the main value of fame is access, and I’d believe that. To have access to people whose work you admire, or access to resources that better enable you to work on exciting and meaningful art. I imagine the worst aspect of fame is that you’re no longer seen as a person. You’re a symbol, a product, an idea. You’re yelling “please don’t touch me” to a stranger, but their eyes are glazed over as they try to get a selfie with you.
If you had to choose a weather phenomenon to represent you, what would it be?
Blue skies baby.
How would you like to be remembered?
I won’t be remembered.
