"Words are just a way we communicate. Images are a way we communicate. And I couldn't figure out why they had to be in different baskets."
"One of the reasons the exhibition, Constructing History: A Requiem to Mark the Moment (2008), came about was in actually dealing with the issue of appropriation. I didn’t want to have to appropriate anybody’s material; I just wanted to revisit this history."
