I love the object, but to be free from it, I have to kill it.
I was destroying most of the work I was doing and it felt really good. There was a real freedom there. It was like, this thing I created I can kill and it becomes a new thing.
I've long believed that the known imposes constraints on creativity, so the more that we know and understand about what we do, the tighter and tighter our focus becomes and we stop exploring.
Whenever I get comfortable creating, whenever I get a pat on the back from mom or someone, or I have a good successful show or make some money, it's like hang a left, break it, right, because this comfort is the most dangerous thing to the creative process.
