"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 was coming down the scenic route, looking at La Jolla, and there she was. The town was laid out on this incredible bay...like Pompeii, which isn’t exactly on a bay, but it’s filled with these beautiful, affluent people living the good life on the brink of annihilation. And in California we are slipping into the sea, eroding into the sea...living on earthquake faults."
