"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."
"The story [of "CREMASTER 3"] has two principals, the Architect and the Mason's Apprentice...The Architect, who's played by Richard Serra, is shown sort of as himself in the game, throwing Vaseline on the top of "Level Five." And he's throwing hot Vaseline in exactly the same way that he threw hot lead in the late '60s."
