Q. o’ th’ D.: Buzz Spector

“I know in negotiating any social situation, I use my language, I use my wit, I use my empathy. I can’t talk my materials, the materials of my studio, I can’t talk them into anything. I have to deal with the material conditions of art from a negotiation of a body to a substance, and there’s something perfectly efficient about that when it works. And there’s no one to blame but myself when it doesn’t.”
