"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"When this piece, 'Scene of the Crime...' was at the Whitney Museum, it almost felt as if I had taken a piece of the South Bronx out of its roots and placed it in the middle of Madison Avenue, you know? And that's my relation to space. That's my relation- one of intervening, of intervention, one of somehow just the position but at the same time trying to fit in or force it into a location more than anything else...it goes against the grain. But somehow because of its spiritual qualities it flows in itself."
