"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"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."
