"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 found this form in Tokyo in a complete set of German-made cast models for the study of mathematics. It’s a very artistic sculpture, but actually it was made to show students that three-dimensional theories can be seen in three-dimensional models. It’s such an irony that mathematicians made more interesting sculpture than artists! This is the image of a mathematician’s thinking. No such thing actually exists in nature; it’s purely what the human mind comes up with- this kind of theory."
