"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."
"Chittenden Screen Tests (Second Set. Virtuous Woman: Mean Showgirl Lynching Retreat)," production stills (2005)
"The performers’ movements are not alienating in and of themselves. It’s what happens to those movements once they’re in the environment of a particular regime. It is to the regime that judgment is to be directed versus judgment being directed at the individuals within it. And that’s been something of a misunderstanding within the work."
