"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."
"Any number of pieces- it's always the skin of the architecture, or the material is always seeking the border, remarking upon the border. And that's not just a physical one; it's also the way that we think about things...those classical categories we inherit out of anthropology: the raw and the cooked, the container and the contained, what is inside and what's outside."
