"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."
"The balloons look like whales suspended in the air...hovering above you, and the sound is kind of biomorphic like a bleating or whale sound. But it’s all based on a score that I put together using lots of old church hymns and ‘Sailor’s Hornpipe’ and ‘Swan Lake.’ There was an improvisational piece that I invited a guest composer in for. So there was this score...constrained to a scale of just twelve tones."
