1(June 2001) "Too many people have a sort of protective attitude about art. You know, 'Don't touch. It's valuable.' I'm trying to be more in your face, like when you walk down the street and suddenly you encounter a situation. I'm trying to invite you into scenes where you might not want to be invited in."
