"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"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."
