"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 category of nature is not something that the field of science has a monopoly on. It is something that everyone has a say in what gets to be nature at a particular time for a particular group of people. And I think that in order to motivate people to care about the natural world around us, one of our chief tools is going to be an aesthetic sensibility."
