HANNAH HOOKS: Your work covers film, installation, collage, sculpture and photography. How would you say you work with technology in your practice?

GOSHKA MACUGA: It’s hard to think of doing anything today without the use of technology. The piece of technology that I use most frequently and which has almost become part of me is my computer. I haven't quite become part of my computer yet, but through such an excessive use of this machine the actual parts of myself are starting to slowly collapse – this includes my eyes as well as my soul. I do lots of my research on the computer but I also often work on Photoshop. Telephone is the second most useful gadget. I sleep next my phone, I make art on the telephone and as John Cage said, ‘...when I am working well my bills go up’. After the phone and the computer, the third essential is the drill and that's about it.
