"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"The five chapters of the story are about an organism that is changing, and the system that changes that form alters from chapter to chapter...It's essentially about an imposed will onto the state of the [cremaster] form, sometimes in a very abstract way, sometimes in a more literal, biological way. But it's basically a structural word. It's being used as a way to tell the story, and not as a way to define a biological system at all."
