"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I’m not interested in the virtual; I’m interested in the actual. I like to be in places and work with things to create a situation that is experiential. I don’t want people to see my work only through representations, through images. I want them to be able to move through the spaces. It’s important that things have a texture, a smell, a feeling . . . something that you can never capture from a photograph."
