"Hundreds—maybe thousands—of people put their hands on these things and they wind up in a commercial situation. In the art world people might say, “Oh, it’s just a stupid commercial situation.” But in fact there may be thousands of actual hands of individual people that produced those things, and I was looking for some of that feeling in this project."
