"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...."
"For a lot of people collecting is an impulse that begins in childhood. I was a child who had collections and was constantly in search of things like butterfly nets and cigar boxes. These things still have a particular attraction, a patina of engagement that is fascinating. As I go through museums, I see that a lot of the motivation of curators and people who are scientifically trained comes from finding productive ways of using these impulses."
