The thing with high-tech is that you always end up using scissors.

A belief is like a guillotine, just as heavy, just as light.

I may seem to be passionately concerned with the 'hows' of representation, how you actually represent rather than 'what' or 'why'. But to me this is inevitable. The 'how' has a great effect on what we see. To say that 'what we see' is more important than 'how we see it' is to think that 'how' has been settled and fixed. When you realize this is not the case, you realize that 'how' often affects 'what' we see.

The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent.

The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist.

There comes a point where you see it all as completely empty being a popular artist to the extent that people who are not necessarily interested in art know about things or take some little interest. I think that now for me it's a burden. It's a bit hard to deal with and it wastes time as well.

Anything simple always interests me.

When you're very young, you suddenly find this marvellous freedom, it's quite exciting, and you're prepared to do anything.

We grow small trying to be great.
