"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."
"The curator for this exhibition really wanted to bring in a piece called ‘Iceberg (r11i01)’, but it didn’t fit. And so I said, well let’s create a new work, let’s do ‘Iceberg (r11i01)’ recumbent. We’ll just tip it over. It’s perfect! It’s already about crumpling up utopian modernity, taking a Buckminster Fuller geodesic dome and crushing it in your hands and throwing it in the wastebasket and saying, ‘Oh my gosh, what have I done?’, retrieving it and never being able to get it back to its proper shape. And so why not tumble it up? Why not?"
