"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."
"What I find most interesting about people is that the structure of meaning and significance that each of us lives with isn’t easy to articulate. That’s why storytelling is so important- and art making- because in those forums, as opposed to something like an academic essay, we create structures that are difficult to pin down and we accommodate floating kinds of significance."
