Micah Adams – 30sec film artists Q&A

What’s your favorite thing to do when you are alone?

Listen to music, do reflective things, it doesn’t matter what it is, it feels different, relaxing when done alone, but usually i’ll puffer on artworks.

What’s your craziest dream?

I have an reoccurring dream. It is a levitating dream where a large flat expansion is tilting and shifting and I am very tiny. There are large spheres slowly moving around me. It’s not a nice dream.

What super power do you want to have?

There’s something nice about experience based knowledge, so maybe I would pick immortality as a superpower.

What the craziest thing you’ve done when you were a child?

I used to collect beer bottle caps and other garbage. I values the bottle cap that were most pristine, undamaged. Or a cigarette package on the ground that hadn’t been ruined yet would be a good fins.
