What's next for you professionally? Will you continue Sympathy?
Yeah but that's really slowed down anyway, 'cause things are so bad. It's horrible. It sucks. I have in my mind that I'm going to slowly start selling some stuff on eBay. That may become my life—selling the extra stuff I have. I have so much stuff in flat-files. It's just, what's the point? I'm never going to be able to display it.
Are you coming to your opening?
I may. I don't really like very much to be the center of attention. It's not very exciting for me because I live with this shit every day. It's taken me 11 years for me to create this environment in my house.
