Three ironies of having video made of us while we ramble about art, creation and desire: 1) I often say way too many truths about why I make things, even if I think I'm obscuring the real answer, 2) I like challenges and consider blanket statements about what we make not a personal affront but a personal reason to prove otherwise, and 3) I like making images when the video cameras have been turned off and the cameramen are otherwise distracted, per the case with these.
