Flow fascinates me. How your mind can enter another world when you are really into your work.

Your city’s favourite spots?
Taking a walk on Karl Marx Allee. It’s vast and wide and not part of the cities bar and club scene so it does not scream for attention and leaves you alone. Weserhalle gallery. Accessible contemporary art gallery. Love it. Akademie der Künste in Tiergarten. Park am Gleisdreieck.
