Describe your studio/workspace

Any chair, any where.

Where do your best ideas come from?

I have ideas when I read, walk, draw, teach, write, listen, sleep, eat, dance.
I try not to worry if they are good or bad.

If Tate called you tomorrow and invited you to make work for the Turbine Hall, what would it be?

Probably something with big rocks. Big lovely warm rocks that I could sleep on.
