"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Wall Chart of World History from Earliest Times to the Present," detail (1997)
"There was ‘The Wall Chart of World History...’ and I think the reference to history came after making this drawing and seeing it as kind of a time line because it has this feeling of different events being portrayed, one taking over another. It was a long red drawing and it looked like it was a spirograph drawing. It had a real biomorphic quality, almost like it was composed of intestines or something."
