"Words are just a way we communicate. Images are a way we communicate. And I couldn't figure out why they had to be in different baskets."
"Collecting may be a passion or it may be impulsive, but then there’s ordering, taxonomy, classification- putting things together in a way that makes sense. Of course we have a scientific way of organizing things- but there are other kinds of taxonomies based on use, folklore, personal tastes, and imaginary hierarchies. That’s really what is fascinating for me. Scientific classification is constantly changing as information shifts."
