"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"I used to think that I didn’t have a self. I didn’t have a self that was mine and I literally decided on being an actor when I decided, "If I don’t have a self of my own I can borrow other people’s, and so I’ll be an actor." But I found the kind of stuff I was called on to do was just stupid. I went back to my first love which was writing, and then I left that. I was moving through all these different art forms. And it wasn’t until conceptual art started coming in with its possibility for mixed media, for not being stuck with particular genres, that I could make use of all these talents of mine."
