Satellite Voices: What makes you smile?
Alice Lewis: The poem "Watermelon" by Charles Bukowski.
SV: What was the first thing you ever made?
Alice Lewis: In my early teens, I made customised sunglasses for a friend who played keyboards in a band. They where bright orange plastic. I cut some thin metal wire threads, heated one end with a lighter and sunk them into the melting plastic. In the end there were threads sprouting out of everywere, I then shaped them into faces and spirals and after that added a few coloured beads here and there, et voilà! They were quite ugly really, but it was lots of fun.
