"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 Dead' are sort of deformed and mutated or a specific set of characteristics. There are seven of them, and they match the seven parts of the viral life-cycle. Each one fulfills a specific sort of mission, and that’s why they have these kinds of ritual poses, which are based on the torments of the damned from Greek mythology. They’re drawn out of a classical idea of a cycle of perpetual punishment."
