"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"Once I started learning Adobe Illustrator to combine shapes it freed me to think in larger quantities. I don’t know if it got me to think about things I couldn’t have done otherwise. It was just that if I used the computer I could do more of them, more quickly. I spent about five months making all the little parts that I designed for The Shapes Project by hand, the way you do with a drawing program—filling in, getting them to the right size, testing, and making sure it worked."
