Interview with ERIK SVETOFT:
Your childhood ambition:
I think I wanted to be an astronaut for a while but only because it sounded impressive.
Something you treasure:
The process of solving a problem.
Your worst habit:
Some days I forget to eat and just drink coffee instead. I also have a very bad sleeping pattern.
The aspect of your work that’s most important to you:
That there is a story hidden or visible in every piece.
Your first job:
Separating sausages in a sausage factory with a small knife. It was cold and damp and smelled like smoked meat. I worked there for a day.
Someone whose work you highly recommend:
I recommend the architecture of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. I’ve been meaning to visit Vienna and see it in person.
