"I started making the furniture sculptures in '82. I thought about my childhood. When I was a little boy, I'd get a chair and nail car parts to it from around the environment, everything I could get or whatever associated with a car. I did dream of owning my own real car instead of the toy cars I had then. So I thought about that—one of my childhood fantasies of having my own car. People that have looked at it have called it a time machine, but it's a fantasy automobile.”
