"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."
"I’m not looking for the newest museum. I’m always looking for the oldest museum. I’m looking for museums that are windows into the past. And because my topic really is the representation of nature, I’m looking mostly at natural history museums. But there are taxonomies in art museums as well, and those taxonomies shift. We’re constantly rediscovering long dead artists and putting them into a different context, a different place. We’re constantly shuffling the deck."
