"We only move into the 21st century on the foundation of things that have been established long, long ago."
"I want to show how difficult that is for us to grasp, not just conceptually but also practically- how difficult it is for us to figure in all of the variables needed to replicate a forest. You should look at this and get the impression of looking at someone in a hospital under an oxygen tent. There should be pangs of melancholy when you see this. Of course it is, in some way, a celebration, but at the same time it’s full of mourning and melancholy."
