1) What appealed to you about the FUCK CANCER project and why are you putting your energy into it?

Primarily honesty. It's easy enough these days to surround ourselves with lighthearted fun. Living in a bubble of positivity and good feelings. FUCK CANCER tries to break that apathy a bit towards the problems of the wider environment, and I find that endearing. It's not primarily made with the goal of just talking about something unpleasant. It's meant to awaken a little more empathy, to be a little more human.

2) What does the term FUCK CANCER mean or express to you?

Probably general attitude and mind-set. It's a phrase in which there can be understanding, anger but also a certain combativeness and determination. But I'm not very good at English, so I'm not sure I've got it right.

3) Can you imagine who you are fighting for here as a "SOLDIER"?

Absolutely vivid. My original idea was: 250 cm, purple eyes, 4 arms. But I met a lot of them during the project and I couldn't believe how wrong I was... They were standard people.

4) What would you say to someone who says they find the phrase "FUCK CANCER" vulgar?

That he chose probably the most stupid way to approach and perceive the whole campaign. And that he completely missed what it was really about.
