I almost started to run but decided walking quickly would be less ridiculous, I was only 5 minutes late and I knew somewhere in the back of my head I was the only one who would notice or worry about it. That all seems silly now that I know the place.
The Artists Annoymous are three people. Here is their website. When I came in the first time on that weekend in Berlin, I met with Ed and he explained to me that they needed interns for an upcoming show in Amsterdam. An installation based on a video game which would be built here then transported by trucks and set up at the gallery there. After I moved here and emailed Ed about coming in he said great, wear something you can get dirty.

In my experience with photography I never got really good and dirty, I mean you can’t really get chemicals all over without causing some serious damage. There’s something quite satisfying about making things and coming home a bit more sore, with paint around the edges of your fingernails, and scrapes on your knuckles. It’s a whole new sense of feeling useful.

The first day I was there we tore down a giant pin hole camera that was taking up too much space in the studio. Then we started to build. The process has been a lot of give and take, discussing, and cups of coffee stirred with ends of rulers or pencils.
