"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"I’ve done several projects that looked at issues of appropriation and I’ve always thought that it was a legitimate use of material, though I can certainly understand that artists would be upset about that. So I’ve had to negotiate for the use of material. I’ve had controversies around my work, always, and I think it’s actually really important."
