Yes, but my income fluctuates a great deal: suddenly there’s much too much, then nothing for a long time and that means you have to be thrifty and endure it.
I build my things because I want to see them somewhere, and I want to keep developing my visual vocabulary—of course, I have to pay for that. Azurkomplex (Azure complex), for example, was very labor-intensive and expensive. I financed it entirely through the Wilhelm Lehmbruck stipend. First comes the artistic curiosity, then the entrepreneurial calculation. The question is what are you making, what are you living for—not how much are you making, alone.
