How did you get into debt?
Undergraduate and graduate school loans, with 6+% interest.
How does your economic reality effect your art?
I am studying Arts Administration because I felt it irresponsible to go into debt for an arts practice which I feared would certainly not allow me to pay back my loans. With administrative skills I can work within the system, pay back my loans, and now admire art professionally and make art casually. (This was not an ideal but a necessary reality for my financial future. Yet, I am still in debt)
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
I would be making work instead of studying the economics of the market.
