Matt Prins has left the building

Matt Prins has left the building

A good man unexpectedly left, leaving a terrible emptiness and a dreadful silence around the creative writing department. No more singing, no more mechanic talking, no more story telling. Fabrica’s talented, honest and most photogenic man, left in our hearts pure sadness and sorrow.

From left to right: mysterious hand, fabricante, ex fabricante, trial. Right corner: our lonely little Matt.

What was your life like pre-Fabrica?
I studied screenwriting in Vancouver then went directly into working at a dry ice factory, and lived in my parent's basement. I applied to Fabrica a couple of months later. I checked my email every few hours for six months for a response. When I finally heard back from Monica I had just given up hope, so it was a very nice surprise.

What was life like during Fabrica?
Amazing and horrible. Insular and liberating. Frustrating and awe-inspiring. I fucking hated it at times, but loved the shit out of it far more often. As humdrum as it can seem, life in Fabrica is a constant guessing game.

What are you most proud of doing in your time here?
Writing for myself. I think a lot of people come to Fabrica expecting it to be a wonderful creative year where they'll get to explore their practice, and then they end up doing what Benetton or the UN or Omar asks them to do. Then think, "Whatever. I'll just do a great job on this poster about Spousal Abuse and have a drink at San Tomasso to take the edge off."

What advice would you have wanted before coming here?

People are going to talk about you behind your back, but don't take it to heart, because everyone talks about everyone behind everyone's backs. That's just what happens when you're living, working, drinking, eating, traveling and sleeping with the same 40 people that everyone else is living, working, drinking, eating, traveling and sleeping with.

Best and worst moments?
3 Very Great Moments: Cross-dress party and following morning, trip to NY with Reed, and any amount of time spent with any member of "the clique," (completely opposed to that label by the way) and the clique-extended family (that's you Cosimo.) 3 Very Bad moments: death threats from Bloodfists, saying bye to Reed Nat Pia and Miren in the span of 6 weeks, going to Rome when I was meant to go to the beach.

What's the plan now?
Dry ice and parent's basement.

Any parting words? Any thanks to give?
I fell in love and/or felt complete admiration and fondness with and for so many people, hundreds surely, in these 20 months. It's amazing how much love you have to give and take. To EVERY ONE person i met from my trial to my goodbye party - thank you. X.

Mateito, you make. We all wish you the very best.
