"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"The concept of a Shinto shrine itself is an architecture- a case- but inside, there’s nothing in there. It’s an empty box. It’s just purified space. Once it’s covered, four sides and top and bottom, it’s sealed. So that’s the notion- for the god to descend. It’s already purified space."
