Erwin Wurm: Despite the fact that Hundley’s dayjob is in IT management at an Austin hospital, “I’m always thinking about art,” he says. “I’ll be in a meeting with eight executives and they’re yapping and I’m thinking, Erwin Wurm in the corner of a gallery sticking his head in a bucket.” The Austrian contemporary artist is known for his temporary sculptures, which involve people posing in strange situations and interacting with objects, and he’s a huge influence on Hundley. “I love how Wurm injects humans into work, how it becomes this ephemeral thing. It’s a continuation of this degradation of art, in the sense that you can’t buy it and put it on your wall. It pushes envelopes.” Above: One of Wurm’s One Minute Sculptures
