"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."
"It occurred to me that the bedroom of Reagan in the movie 'The Exorcist' is probably the architectural setting that I grew up with as the image of terror, and it’s something that I never even saw. It was something that I just recreated in my head. So I literally watched the movie over and over again, memorizing the details of that room until I could physically fabricate that room in miniature. I gave it the title ‘Quod Nomen Mihi Est?’ which is a reference from the movie as well. It’s the priest talking to the possessed girl and asking in Latin, ‘Who are you?’"
