"When I go home to visit in Zulu-land, it is always incredibly hot and my family is sitting inside hermetically protected with the windows closed and the air-conditioning going full-blast. Every now and then someone will go outside to say a few words to the workers, then run back in. Outside the air-conditioners drip and hum... Seemingly quite bland objects have a resonance for me. I try not to make deliberately threatening objects."
