"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"The Department of Marine Animal Identification of the City of New York (Chinatown Division)" (1992)
"My way of putting things together and the filters I’m using to organize knowledge in my own head are also changing drastically. So certain things, like my re-engagement with some elements of Surrealism (which were always in my work), increasingly come out. My relationship to the politics of environmentalism and ecology changes as I learn more about the history of science and the shifts in the representation of nature. All of those things inform the way my work functions."
