Quotations

The wit and wisdom.

 
"I really want to emphasize that if someone else had my technology, the images they would make would be completely different, just like two different photographers with a camera or two different painters with a paintbrush. Photomosaics is a medium. When photography started, people didn‘t think it was art. Painters were, like, that‘s not art, you‘re just capturing reality."
"In fact, in the early days of photography, people were just working on the process of capturing an image, and they didn‘t spend as much time on the content. Similarly, once I perfected Photomosaics, I started thinking about content and putting messages in it."
"Photomosaics can‘t be defined as either art or not art. It‘s just a medium, but it‘s certainly a rich enough medium that you can make art in it."
