What triggers or inspires a new idea is being open to this sort of search – this hunt for an object that provides multiple readings. I’m always looking – I’m not sure what I’m looking for, but when its there, it has a different sort of pulse. The vibration, the intensity of it, is very present, so I sort of know. I may not know how I’m going to use it right away, but I know it has the proper ingredients to be transformed into something.

I’m amazed when I find an object and I’m not yet sure of its use, but the object is so grand in its presence and ability. You know, I’ve had things for years and then all of a sudden, Parts B and C appear in the world. Then I bring them here, and it all just comes together like magic. So it’s an ongoing process of recognition and response.
