"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’ve been very involved in not having a signature material. I think there is a signature style. It’s like handwriting. And I have a feeling that anybody who’s seen much of my work would probably recognize it as mine. But I don’t use the same materials. I like having different kinds of input coming in. When I first came to New York, I had no money, obviously (no one had any money). And I had the year of aluminum foil. I did the year of little tiny wire structures. And then I would get a router or a tool and it was the year of the router, the year of the jigsaw."
