"I think of all the aspects of display or style or, quote-unquote, beauty. Not of the word ‘beauty’ per se but of elegance- of its specific visual nature, or humor- so that you want to look at it. It’s a way of bringing people into the work- and then there are ideas or experiences for them to find."
