Art is made by individuals; it’s not made in theory. It’s not made by being reasonable at all. It’s made by being obsessed. And you can’t teach obsession. You can’t teach obsession that’s intelligent and inviting. People just come up in spite of all this stuff.
I just hope that one day—preferably when we’re both blind drunk—we can talk about it.
