Question 8: How do you approach the creation of a new work? Do you have a specific method or way of initiating the process?


It has happened that I’ve had an idea in my mind and that I go out to find the materials that would best express that idea. On other occasions, the material simply asserted itself. I happened upon a manna, something that appealed to me and then I’d say: Actually, I can bring out some of the ideas that I have had hanging around for a long time, and I’ll work this material in that vein. So there is no single way of doing things for me, it depends. Sometimes, there are casual accidents and sometimes you have to sort of make the accidents happen.
