How does your economic reality effect your art?
Spending money isn't much of a possibility for me, so I scavenge for materials at times, stay on top of MFTA, and apply to residencies to get spaces.
Still from a project I did as a member of The Illuminator in Montreal, related to student debt
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
No. For better or worse I don't let my debt dictate the type of work I do, though if I ever want to have a family this will necessarily change.
