In her latest People Watching for the New York Times Leslie Williamson says of artist Steve Roden: "every time our paths have crossed he tells me a story about some amazing object he found at a flea market or auction site. His collecting often inspires and feeds his art. Even the research he undertook last fall at the Berlin archives of the German philosopher and literary critic Walter Benjamin was a bit of a treasure-trolling expedition. “I didn’t know what I was looking for,” Roden told me. “I just know I wanted to find something.” This mind-set might be the key to Roden’s art. He isn’t an artist who creates for specific exhibitions; his work continually evolves with the subjects that interest him and the objects he finds. He is a seeker, and through his seeking he creates."

Leslie Williamson's excellent People Watching series continues with a visit to the home and studio of London based designer Max Lamb. "Lamb and his girlfriend, the artist Gemma Holt, share a live-work space in a former shoe factory in North East London. Entering the front door of No. 11, you pass through Lamb’s workshop first before entering the living area. The workshop is packed: polystyrene is stacked to the rafters, and European oak dowels of every size imaginable line the walls."
