"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"Art-making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying to turn the mundane into gold. You know, you're really trying to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. That's what keeps me doing that, because I keep chasing that: seeing how I can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
