What source material would a stand-up comedian have if it weren’t for strange life experiences and painful moments? I believe the same is true for many visual artists, musicians and performers. There have been many instances in my own work when I was drawn to an idea, material or image for no particular reason. Then later the relevance became clear to me.

from an interview with OtherPeoplesPixels. The interviewer asks her about “a favorite piece of your own work” and she names Center Piece “because of its visual simplicity and the discoveries that it has led me to. This piece was in fact the springboard for all of the white vinyl pieces that I am continuing to make today.”
