"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."
"What I need as I start a project is to create a world. Once the world is created, then I want to enter it as candidly as I can. And my walk through this world is the work. What takes me a long time is to create the world. The work is usually easier."
- Pierre Huyghe
