"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"’Iceberg (r11i01)’ is about stopping time. You take an animation and suspend it, so you have suspended animation of a frozen moment- a three-dimensional photograph of one moment. ‘Iceberg’ and ‘Cloud’, and other projects I’m working on, are almost literally about capturing ephemera. In the end, it’s an impossibility. You really haven’t captured ephemera; you’ve made a thing- a sculpture. You’ve negated the notion of ephemera. Then, it’s only the public moving around the piece, experiencing it, that becomes the ephemeral moment."
