My brand new dress form, Stéphanie*, named after a character from Michel Gondry’s gorgeous La Science des revês, or The Science of Sleep. My little atelier is complete and now the work begins in earnest…
“I love her because she makes things. You know? She makes things with her hands. It’s as if her synapses was married directly to her fingers [wiggles fingers]. Like this. In this way.”
* I was almost named Stephanie, after my father, Steven! I struggled to grow into my strange name, but now I can’t imagine having another.
