"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"An upside-down table is a metaphor; the absurdity of this guy driving is a metaphor. The muffler is an instrument to reduce sound; the trumpet is an instrument to produce a loud sounding call. The juxtaposition of two things completely opposite to each other creates a sort of absurd new instrument. There are tons of things like that, but this absurdity, this nonsense, this paradox . . . all these things constitute part of the meaning of the work."
