"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Using the materials- just these thin membranes filled with air- had a very attractive quality for me. Thinking of sculpting with air (in a lot of my work I use transparent materials, especially in mechanical pieces, because I like to be able to see what’s going on) had an ethereal quality that really appealed to me."
