"There is a nostalgia in my gathering of this material and trying to hold it still for a moment. It's not just a nostalgia in terms of looking backwards—it's a way of imagining forwards; as a way of constantly looking for home, yet you’re continually moving forward and continually seeing the world."

—Ellen Gallagher, from the Art in the Twenty-First Century episode, Play
