"I remember when I first thought about shooting the objects on legs. I was swimming, of all things!...Each time I wanted to think about a new character to photograph, I had to go swimming to get back to the place where I could actually think of whether it should be a house, an hourglass, a microscope, a microphone, or a birthday cake. And that’s how I would get myself into a kind of reverie to think about what would be okay on legs."
