You are taught that it’s nice to have a hobby, but also that you have to think about balance—30% of your income should be spent on your home, 15% on your hobby, 20% on your food, whatever—to have a harmonious lifestyle.
But some people lose their balance. They spend like, 80% on their hobby. I like that! That might sound stupid, but that’s energy. A harmonious life doesn’t have energy. So that sort of imbalance encourages me. These young people could move out to the suburbs and have better rooms; if they didn’t spend so much money on clubbing and mobile phones, they might be able to have a better lifestyle. But they don’t, that’s not their interest.
I like that they know the power to step out of balance. Whether it’s in their home or with fashion. The subject might change, but it’s that lack of balance that makes me interested."
