"Instagram for me is a place where I test the water with new sculptures, captions and ideas, and in order to give them the context they deserve, it is also a place that I pad out with images in which I attempt to make my life look a lot more interesting and fun than it really is. Instagram is place where everyone can work on the image of their ever evolving personal lifestyle brand and for me that brand involves being an artist and bike builder so my Instagram is full of attempts to make it look like I am a master of both of these things. Instagram is also a great leveller, scrolling through my feed I am as likely to see a meme about that little hotdog thing attacking someone’s family as I am to see an image of an Alicja Kwade sculpture and because I see them both in the same context I am as likely to be #inspired by the meme as I am by the sculpture. Most of all Instagram, for me, is that little endorphin rush you get when you see a new like on your post."
