"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 don’t think it has to do with the size or the scale of the work. It has to do with a deep reason why you are doing that work. It can be a small piece or a big piece and meaningless...just as empty of real content as a huge public sculpture or a small drawing can be totally empty."
- Gabriel Orozco
