"There was a period of time when I just had to get off the wall. I just couldn’t take it. I just didn’t want to make one more 16x 20 black-and-white photograph that was matted with the black frame around it. I started printing on cloth—on sheer, diaphanous cloth—and hanging those. There’d be rows and rows and rows of cloth with images printed on them, hanging in the gallery space."
