Catalogue Note

"You see that there is a real relationship between poetry and what I am trying for. And I think that people who want to do manufactured art…let's put it in terms of smell, they have the same kind of smell whenever you get into a new car. You know a new car smells a special way but it doesn't smell like that after you've lived in it for 10 years or so. Then it's part of you, of your clothes, and I think that works [where] there isn't the hands-on, there isn't that kind of thinking, leave me really much more blank."
