"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."
"You grow up with this idealistic idea of wanting to change the world, realizing later on that artworks that look too much like propaganda scare people and people just become defensive. So I realized that the strategy would have to change."
