"I think that by measuring and scrutinizing and investigating everything possible you really consume the space and it becomes part of you. Now you feel like it’s in you and you feel comfortable. That’s why I did my first site-specific installations, and I did the same thing with my Korean house project. But once you take that piece down from its site and transport it and display it in a different place, the idea of site-specific becomes highly questionable and refutable. That’s what I was really interested in because I think this notion of home is something you can repeat infinitely."
