I'm living my life, not buying a lifestyle.
I had to figure out how to bring the world into my work.
I just say I'm an artist who works with pictures and words.
Listen: our culture is saturated with irony whether we know it or not.
Direct address has been a consistent tactic in my work, regardless of the medium that I'm working in.
I'm trying to deal with ideas about histories, fame, hearsay, and how public identities are constructed.
All the gossip and craziness becomes a kind of sustained narrative which, in turn, can become history. It's scary.
You know, one of the only times I ever wrote about art was the obituary of Warhol that I did for the Village Voice.
Do you know why language manifests itself the way it does in my work? It's because I understand short attention spans.
I don't necessarily think that installation is the only way to go. It's just a label for certain kinds of arrangements.
