 The good thing about the money coming in is it allows me to experiment and make more mistakes and gives me more time to think about work that I’m not sure about. 
 I don’t see any difference now between what I collect and what I make. It’s become the same. What I’m collecting will, a lot of times, end up in my work. 
 By generating what appears to be a double, it might be possible to represent what the original photograph or picture imagined... More technological than mechanical, more a simulation than an expression, the result is a photograph that’s the closest thing to the real thing. And since I feel a bit more comfortable, perhaps more reassured around a picture that appears to be truer than it really is, I find the best way for me to make it real is to make it again, and making it again is enough for me and certainly, personally speaking, almost me.
