"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."
"I think art is wonderful because it's everything you've ever known and everything you've ever done, somehow percolating up, working with ideas that you might want to explore. And then you can just wake up one morning and know what you want to do. The hissing of the heat."
- Maya Lin
