Every weekend the theme park was so full of crowds of people. The entire place was made up of garish materials, plastics and cheap wood. I had to paint all of the buildings with images of characters; a complete fantasy land for two years. My main role was to make everything more real than reality. I also used to work as a design shop/gallery manager for a couple of years. This may have been where the foundations of my interest in material happened. The materials I chose to surround myself with are influenced by all of these different experiences. I’ve had big changes during the period of time in GSA. It paved the way to expand myself about how to see and deal with materials.
