"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"There's a continual theme in my life and in my work. It's about taking something that seems like it's one way and flipping it over so it becomes the other. So I like to take things that are maybe limitations in my life and try to somehow recontextualize them, glamorize them, make them more interesting, and vice versa. So I took my simple living situation and used this certain aesthetic code of modern design, and made it, in my mind, very glamorous."
