"I have a labor-intense practice- cutting and cutting, which is grunt work, almost mechanical. That’s foreground. But what’s going on in the background is a thinking process that’s very slow, almost like a meditation. Improvisation is what I like. I limit myself materially- another way of slowing myself down. When there are too many choices, I get confused. So I tell myself something like, ‘I’m only going to use black paper.’ It puts pressure on my creativity to make that black paper sing."
