"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."
"We were interested in the matter-of-factness of what chalk is- a tool- something you find in the classroom. But it’s also a geological substance, found naturally in the earth. Because of its nature, it is ephemeral and fragile. It’s a beautiful white form, minimal looking and very clean- but paradoxically it’s also something that can have a connotation of something dirty because it is used to mark a surface. This was interesting, how this material could be symbolic, iconic, and also nothing else but itself. It was like trying to think about or reconcile a minimalistic form made of this material and putting it in a public setting to see what might unfold."
