Erik Michielsen:  What do you do to recharge your creativity?

Lulu Chen: – I enjoy going to the galleries a lot. We go all over depending on what shows there are.  Most recently, we went to see Tara Donovan.  She had a great installation, with all these Mylar spheres.  It was really cool.  Or just – you know, just to walk around and get outside of your head, and I love interior design, so just to see spaces, you know. There are a lot of textiles and textures.  It’s interesting.  A room is a frame, a canvas, you know.  It’s almost like in replacement of a body, you get to dress the room with different furniture, with different fabrics and colors, you know.
