    ‘Being an artist is being on a lifetime exploration into the unknown. You can compare an artist with an archeologist who tries to reconstruct a certain civilization on the basis of artifacts. An artist must also research his terrain. The terrain is himself. The artifacts he brings forth should begin to explain who he is’ —S. Tajiri
