"I’m trying to think: What binds my work together? And that is most defiantly obsessive thinking. Neat ideas. I always come back to the similar objects. I am obsessed with beds and that has little to do with sex, it has more likely something to do with sleeping. And I am obsessed with water. And the human body, male and female alike. And animals. And wide open landscapes of course, the opposite to caves and tunnels." - Storm Thorgerson
