"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."
"Because of the fact that it’s not symmetrical I feel like The Swarm has become more like a landscape and less like a body. That shape floating in space is very soft, that almost looks like a cloud somehow; but, there at the same time, aggressive. Every element in that swarm has the potential to sting you. I found that combination of the softness of that abstract cloud shape and that aggressive potential to be really nice, that balance."
—David Altmejd in Boundaries (2012)
