"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"I devised...a way of making pinhole cameras...to make my mouth the aperture...to have the orifice of the place where speech exits the body actually become the eye, and to just play with that. Then it was in the process of actually taking those pictures, seeing what they looked like, seeing in fact how the shape of the mouth is very much the same shape as the eye, and seeing myself become almost like the pupil within."
