"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 wanted to do a piece about alienation- and about UFOs- and immigration, placing the work in Tijuana. There’s this large monitor and surveillance system pointed up at the cosmos in Hollywood B-movie fashion, searching for ‘real’ aliens and subverting the meaning of the word. Everybody in Tijuana, from cab drivers to artists to politicians, got the joke."
