"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 really don’t have any desire to make things directly with my hands. I don’t know when I left that behind, because I studied art, but I get everything that satisfies my soul from the kinds of things that I do- bringing objects that are in the world and manipulating them, working with spatial arrangements, and then having things produced the way I want to see them."
