"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 mediums I use range widely, from broken glass to water to granite. And I think formalistically, each time out with these large scale works, they can look very different. But there are some very strong underlying ideas that go throughout the works. One of them is time, one of them is an idea about landscape and the earth, or natural states or phenomena."
- Maya Lin
