f STOP: please tell me more about the idea for this and your theme, and what you’re trying to achieve conceptually.
phillip TOLENDANO: well, my personal work is very political or anthropological in nature. i’m just so interested in that stuff. i was thinking about things, sort of the things that people are afraid of or things that people are interested in or things that people are lustful for. and then i sort of turn those things into suits. it’s interesting because i was thinking about going back to england, but i’m not going to have any artistic inspiration at all because i’m an outsider here. i see things in a different way than i would if i had grown up here.
