"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."
"I didn’t want to make what looked like art in terms of painting. I just thought, “No. I want to make something that looks mass- produced and kind of tacky and cheap.” And I even printed the 8 x 10 film stills badly because I thought that they should look like you just bought them in a bin at a thrift store."
