"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"What I’m photographing here is a nineteenth-century-made machine. I’m trying to make it present as art or sculpture. So my interest- curiosity- is if the non-artist-made object can be presented in a way that it can keep the power of art itself, without artistic intention of its making. I think it’s very conceptual. Marcel Duchamp invented this readymade concept. So I’m definitely borrowing. I cannot escape his influence."
