Charles Krafft interview on The eXTra finGer

Charles Krafft, already mentioned on placeboKatz some weeks ago, has been interviewed by Claudio Parentela for his excellent blog The eXTra finGer, a collection of several interviews with artists. excerpt:
Q What is creativity?
A Creativity is a willed commitment to solitary or collective invention.
Q Does your environment influence your art, either in style/format or interference?
A Yes. I live in "The Imperial City of the InformationAge" (the home of Bill Gates) and selective information influences what I make while random and excess information interferes with it. I tend to waste a lot of time processing information rather than working with my hands. Good craftsmanship is disappearing as technology advances. I started out trying to make elegant paintings with very simple and inexpensive tools. I often wonder if I could ever unplug and return to a life without electricity.
