"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."
"My work is often discussed in terms of post-colonial theory. And, of course, my work does deal with the aftermath or the result of colonialism and its impacts on identity. But it is a fraction of what I do. There are other aspects to my work—the aesthetic aspects, the contradictory aspects—and those are not focused on often enough."
