"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"I wanted to create an environment that had something to do with trade, with public space, and the way people use it for pleasure, for business, for meetings, for secrets. I like that. And this was the amalgamation of all that put together. I wanted to create the feeling of being outdoors and indoors at the same time- those little passageways, alleyways, or narrow spaces between buildings that people turn into private places to talk and gather in."
