"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"A lot of my work comes from an interest in how things are made and how things are done. And the way materials are manipulated and used...and the whole history of that in mankind’s past...and the language that develops around the way materials are used that has a life of its own."
