"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 have two sides: creativity and the architecture. It's got ideas about framing the landscape, being ecologically and environmentally sensitive, not that a lot of the artworks aren't using recycled materials and about nature in another way. But formally, I liked that they're different, that I don't want my architecture looking like my sculptures and I don't want the sculptures being at all architectonic in their form."
- Maya Lin
