"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."
"It’s important too that I’m a small identity or a small entity trying to function, managing to pull off these large-scale projects. Managing to do things that people usually think that you have to be an expert to do or an architect, like to make a trailer or to a 44-ton concrete island. I like this aspect that I’m sort of small, but I create the visual appearance of something large...and how it takes only a few to create this whole structure."
