"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."
"’Borrowing Your Enemy’s Arrows’ uses three thousand arrows on a boat that’s hanging. I’ve used the image of the arrow quite a lot. And I also like to hang things up. Perhaps it’s the physical response one has with an object that’s been pierced through- and then also to the change of gravity when you lift things off the ground."
