What inspires you to make new work?
Lots of things: reading the Metro over people’s shoulders, books about crop circles, about material culture, about empires, anecdotes from pals. When you’re investigating the everyday and its irregularities, speaking to the people around you about their experiences opens up a lot of interesting avenues. A lot of the time you hear or read things where you think "‘you just can’t make that shit up,” stuff that makes your eyes light up and your brain start whirring. Being out and about and travelling to different places is important too, getting out of the studio and away from my desk. Recently I visited a man in Cornwall who built his own version of Stonehenge in his front garden. He told me stories about himself and about Cornwall, then we did some water divining around the stone circle. It was such a great trip. And then on my way home the other day I saw a guy loading a giant foot into the back of a van, that was great too. New ideas and new projects can come from anywhere.
