"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"I’m a secular person. I don’t believe in any kind of mystical mumbo-jumbo. For me and for a number of artists today, science really functions as our world view. I don’t see that as terribly different from the way artists used the Church in the past. Our relationship to science is very much like the Renaissance artists’ relationship to theology."
