"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"I had a Venetian glass fabricator create a huge seventeenth-century Venetian glass chandelier that would normally be in pastel colors or white. Whenever I use black it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color black as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of black - blackness- and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race but also its meanings as just the color- or lack of color- or specific materials and their own histories, and trying to confuse that a bit."
