"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"I try to elicit memories so that people are not walking around blinded by their environment. I look at things and wonder what they are and why they are. I see things and wonder why people are not wondering about them. Everything interests me: a gum wrapper could interest me as much as something at the Metropolitan Museum."
