"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"’Emoter’ uses the expressions of the face that are so cued into reading the face. I took a picture of myself and cut the features up into little pieces, like a puzzle, and rearranged the features. And each time I did it, I created a different emotion, and that’s just something I read into it. Anybody looking at it would read into this, would reinterpret it, as I think we all pretty much interpret the same basic emotions- frowning, smiling- but I was interested in seeing how much inflection and emotion I could get out of the face using random input of signals."
