Sara Greenberger Rafferty Interview

Artist Q&A

1. What is your idea of a dream home or holiday?
Home: any one of the carriage houses on Verandah Place in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Holiday: anywhere with my husband, when I'm not working, where there's above average food.
2. What is your preferred mode of transportation?
Tele-portation.
3. What is your favorite film?
Some days it's McCabe and Mrs. Miller, some days it's Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles and for completely inexplicable reasons, just seeing the words "Meet the Fockers" cracks me up.
4. What is on your iPod?
I'm clearing out space for Tyler, The Creator next month.
5. What is your preferred drink?
Tequila shots.
6. What would you want your last meal on earth to be?
Whatever I had for dinner the night before, because I'd prefer to die in my sleep.
