In the second episode of Out of Focus, Tom Sachs talks to Merve Çağlar about how he has spent his days in lockdown and how this period manifested his opinions on anti-consumerism. Beginning from his early years, Çağlar and Sachs delve into his technique of bricolage and DIY as well as his most recent ISRU Project. Sachs also comments on how rituals can save us.
“My biggest ritual is output before input. Do not look at your cell phone first thing in the morning. Write in your journal. Dance. Touch clay. Speak. Sing. Do something that’s output so that you channel your eight hours of rest; of your access to your subconscious mind.” – Tom Sachs
