"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"I don't think that simply because I am an artist, or because anybody is an artist, that people ought to give their attention to the things that we've made. In some ways we have to earn our audience's attention, and one of the ways we earn our audience's attention is to make things that are phenomenologically fascinating."
