"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"As a woodworker, I use tools all the time. And just paying attention to tools, the evolution of woodworking tools in itself...there’s a certain art history to that. You look at the forms that various utilitarian things have taken throughout history and there’s a whole sort of shifting sense of beauty with the way that the different cultures have shaped things that fit the hand and that are used to do a job, to move material that has some weight, or relate to the way the hand holds them."
