"I think that I have a way of detecting bullshit. I'm not very good at playing games and I'm not very good at dressing up and I tend to be quite fervent about anything I think is delving into art. You've got to be quite careful you don't push your audience anywhere into a place where they think you're jerking them off. But you've also got to be prepared to move on and experiment. I like the idea that when this stuff comes up I would take a cautious attitude and the reason for that is that I want someone to convince me that this is the right way to do it."
