Julian Lass

Julian Lass is doing a PhD at the Royal College of Art, which is a bit like a sanatorium on top of a hill that in many respects resembles a castle. At this frightful place, reachable only by a narrow walkway, students can attend courses and obtain practical experience. In one of these buildings there is an astonishing collection of art which the unwilling inhabitants of this place have made. This archive touched the young man of this story very deeply and from the beginning he sought to understand these flashes of genius, and to inquire into the vague and perilous territory that seemed to teeter on the very borders of insanity. Only much later was he to discover certain techniques which helped him to start advancing out of this no-man's land.
