Interview with Brock Davis – a guy who makes really cool things – born in Marietta, Georgia in 1972.
Where are you right now?
At my studio in Minneapolis. In other words, at my home.
What’s the best part of your job ?
What were your favorite activities when you were a child ?
Drawing, playing with legos, watching cartoons, playing games with my siblings
Which one of your creations is your favorite and why ?
I like some of my recent iPhone photo images. Shark (bread knife / filet knife), Parsley on apple stem / tree on hill, grape dog, etc.
I love the ideas that pop in my head quickly so that I have to drop everything and make them right then. These ideas, from concept to execution, take only a few minutes to create.
I like these the most because they are created out of pure spontaneity and I think that spontaneity resonates in the final piece.
What beer do like the most ?
Are you considered as a funny guy by your friends ?
You would have to ask them. :)
Do you have current projects or specific plans for the future ?
From a creative standpoint, my plans are the same as they have always been. To make great work and have fun doing it.
If you were a superhero, who would you like to be ?
Probably one of the Wonder Twins. Janya I think? The one who could turn into any animal. I think it would be great to be an animal for a little while.
What are you going to do just after answered this final question ?
Slip into my cashmere smoking jacket, pour myself a glass of 1865 Chateau Lafite and continue my research on Phoenician Salt Mining.
Hehe thanks Brock !
