most memorable/influential moment growing up
a montage of memories enters, me studying my body as it developed from girl to woman.. i was completely fascinated with this process and observed it all in complete secrecy. it all makes sense finally, as the body is the central theme of my work. but at the time, it was an obsession that i didn't understand how to celebrate    

favorite quote
"there is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. the world will not have it. it is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. it is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. you do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. you have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. keep the channel open. ... no artist is pleased. [there is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. there is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others."
