Who are you and what do you do?
I am Magnus and I am an artist. I make moving pictures. They range from films, music videos and commercials.. pretty much anything that involves moving pictures.
Are there moments when you feel scared or bored?
The thing is, I feel like we're all scared of being bored and just feeling down, sad, or depressed. I look at these emotions as a roller coaster ride; when you're bored you're on a plane, preparing for the moment before taking off to go even higher . Who wants a life that's just a straight line? People should want waves of scary and boring and confusing emotions that feel like a big roller coaster. Where one minute you are down on the bottom and before you know it, you're higher than anybody else.
How does it feel to be an artist in new York City?
It's interesting. A person can easily get lost. You don't really get to "see" your conscious, because you're surrounded by so much inspiration.
I like to "fill up" in New York and then I like to go away. Just go far away and give myself time to sort out everything and process everything I have learned. I love going home to Denmark. I like to sit in my parent's garden and reflect on everything.
Do you feel you're a "grown-up"?
I don't really want to grow up, I want to stay a kid as long as possible and as stupid as possible. I think if you get too grown up, or you get too old, that you know too much and you worry about too much. I want to stay a kid, forever.
