"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"I had a lot of conversations with a group of youngsters in the Newark area...and when it came to incarceration, there was a dead silence in the room. I remember it was a group of young kids who had experienced growing up in the absence of their father. And the minute there was a death silence, I just thought, this is it, this is the topic. Growing up in the absence of your father, your father might have been there physically, but spiritually, mentally and psychologically- they’re not there, they’re not present. And I think that I wanted to explore more about that in the work."
