"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 am not a solo singer. In my studio we are a chorus. One person could not produce such work; it is a collective effort. I work with architects—a team of architects that continuously gives me their creativity, their ideas, their input into the way that the pieces can be made and, even though I have a very precise idea of what I want, the kind of image I need. They are the ones that are making that image possible, building it in material."
