"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."
"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."
