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.

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.
