Rafman begins his day very early with a breakfast of bagels, lox and cream cheese from Fairmount Bagel, which he enjoys while still in bed, after which he scrolls through his social media feeds, tends to emails and work notes with the help of Siri before getting up to take a bath, a work habit inspired by Gertrude Stein. (Rafman had an oversized tub custom-designed for this purpose.) After a quick coffee, the artist enjoys a three-course Greek lunch at Milos, followed by a Vodka Red Bull with lemon served slightly below room temperature, before heading into the studio to work. At 5pm, he takes an hour and a half nap, another bath, and returns to studio after dinner.
