Anyway, I just read this from an interview the artist did for The Rumpus in 2009 and it's currently touching me in all the right places, so I thought I'd share...
"The amazing thing is that we live our lives with the hope that things will go right, that things will happen. And all along the way, we’re inspired by the unknown and the unnameable. The minute you can fully describe something it’s gone. The most amazing moments are when something horrible is about to happen or has just happened. The iceberg falling into the ocean. That aching moment. You can see the pieces, you can see how they fit together, but you can’t put them back together. Also, I’m drawn to moments of ambiguity, when things could go right or they could go wrong. I’m interested in discomfort. Discomfort is a place where we’re still close enough to comfort to understand our unhappiness. Most of the things we desire are things that can destroy us."

P.S. If you know what's good for you and happen to be in Montreal on September 21st, "The Wolf Knife" makes it's Canadian premiere at Pop Montreal and you should go see it.
