"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"’Black Rainbow’ is a work I’m preparing to do for Valencia, Spain. I was invited to see the site in March 2003, and three days prior to my departure the Madrid bombing happened. Valencia is very famous for its really crazy explosive fireworks shows that they put on every year. But being there in that atmosphere, with the bombing that had just happened, I was really thinking about what possibilities there still are for fireworks. And what came to mind was making a black fireworks show."
