ASCT
What did you dream about last night?
A
My last night’s dream was , I think, Hansel and Gretel inspired, it was this great adventure with a friend of mine and real fun, too, until she fell down from the roof. Then the awful, blunt sound of her body hitting the ground which woke me up.

 

ASCT
What are you the most afraid of?
A
Just like everybody, I guess: death of the ones close to me, solitude in my own time of dying.

 

ASCT
What are you secretly obsessed with?
A
Visual phenomena, appearances, the shape of things.Photos and scrap booking. Photos of things that would make me happy but I lack them in my life. Photos of things that make me happy and are present in my life.

 

ASCT
What do you see here?

A
Black blots which remind me of a white pharaoh crying out, nose of a skull, a face drawn by Josef Bolf, a white bat, Rorschach from Watchmen, two stone heads from the Eastern Islands, fireworks.

 

ASCT
What got you into the most trouble as a kid?
A
Ceaseless talking and  fits of anger and  sadness.

 

ASCT
Have you done anything recently you want to remember?
A
Unplanned visit to Brno. Trip to Vienna. Last weekend in Prague. I mostly walked around the city and saw stuff . I think that’s my favorite thing to do.
I also liked coming from work last week and finding somebody in my bed. It felt kind of intimate and grown-up.

 

ASCT
Name an activity that makes you loose track of time.
A
Lying in bed awake. And sleeping, wherever.

 

ASCT
What do you look at first when you wake up?
A
The wall. Then the window. Then the plants in my room.

 

ASCT
Most memorable time a person motivated you to do something?
A
I don’t think that ever happened. I would probably remember if it did happen, wouldn’t I?
