"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"I started working on my Hiroshima projection with the assumption that we were going to ‘reactualize’ the A-Bomb Dome monument (one of the few structures that survived the bombing- just underneath the hyper-center of the explosion) and reanimate it with the voices and gestures of present-day Hiroshima inhabitants from various generations...So all those generations somehow connect through this projection, not necessarily in agreement in terms of the way the bombing is important and the way the meaning of that bombing connects with their present experiences. The fallout of the bombing is physical and cultural, psychological."
