Studying, experiencing and exploring always refine perspectives, although our degrees definitely helped us seeing beyond what we saw before. We’ve actually talked about this quite a lot, and we think we learned a lot about ourselves and discovered new sides and shades; something existing and safe was challenged. Also all the wonderful people we’ve met during our studies, the networks we’ve created and our friends are a massive privilege to have, and in their own ways, they’ve also shaped our perspectives.
We are inspired by many different things; each of us has his own, but every now and then we also share them. We talk a lot quite directly about everything, but in this case, exploring and even doing just everyday stuff might be amazingly inspirational. Of course galleries, museums, live performances, travelling and maybe also some sort of unspoken things, taboos, inspire us. And also Ryan McGinley and David Hockey are definitely huge sources of inspiration.
