Where are you typing this from?

At home, I turned on the heater for the first time this year. Winter is here and that's cool.

What do you watch/listen to while working?
Can you tell us about your process?

It's a process where I like to create tools to help me to achive my visual work. I like to create semi-automatic objects and scenes where chaos and randomness have important roles to play. I make many variations of the same scene and select the variation I like. It's like being a supermad scientist in a large lab building into a moutain with a camera. A scientist who does not care too much about science but more about what science can do for him. A lot of my personal work is loops. It's very interresting to deal with such an important constraint: important constraint and possibility are limitless.

Any last advice for the folks just starting out?

Just try to enjoy doing it. Most of the pleasure in all of this is about doing it. Having a good time making cool stuff. And when it's over, retry something new. And again...
