Matthew Stone interviews Steph Raynor.
MS: How can we change the world and what is there to be done?
SR: Achieve the impossible, open all doors of perception - step through the threshold of enlightenment, free ourselves and minds through the power of art.
MS: What do you have faith in?
SR: Dark Angels, immortality, sacred philosophy and pleasure, symbolic art, the infinite divine spirit.
MS: If you could say one sentence to future generations, what would it be?
SR: No rules, Stay innocent, Embrace Experience, What's in your head is more important than the external.
MS: Do you hope to be remembered and what for?
SR: Using Art's power through political and radical change to penetrate and destroy mediocrity, transcending everything.
MS: What is most important to you?
SR: Using life as Art, putting my heart and soul into it like a knife, getting far away from unhappy, dumbed down people, being defiantly different, searching for the disturbing, dangerous extraordinary and exquisite.
MS: What question should be added to this list?
SR: Are we anywhere near where we need to be?
