"In my artistic practice I often engage with the question of extremes: eating contests, celebrity, capital punishment, survivalism, vacation. What does it mean to look at extremes without judgment? Extremes interest me because they are both out of reach and painfully real. They are a source of anxiety and pleasure, humor and threat, and they impel our actions and our psychology, even as we live most of our lives without great event."
