"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"The sheer density of advertising creates a psychic mass, an overlay that can sometimes be very tense or aggressive. The colors shift; the palette becomes very violent. If there’s a twenty- foot wall with one advertisement for a movie about war, then you have the repetition of the same image over and over- war, violence, explosions, things being blown apart. As a citizen, you have to participate in that every day. You have to walk by until it’s changed."
