"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"The real motivation that brings me to the arena...to the sport spectacle in general has to do with the kind of intensity of perceptual experience, the perceptual overload that it represents for me. When the game is going, the lights are very bright, the noise is intense, it gets very exciting, and I’m drawn to think about what it must be like down on the court, having to train one’s perceptions and skills to play the game amidst all the...overload throwing you off balance."
