Curmudgeon // Tied Hands
this blood is on yr fucking hands!
No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

"I talked to my friend’s 17-year-old daughter about the slang that teenagers use, and this lovely young lady explained that all her friends call one another "bitches", "sluts" and "whores". I also went to clubs in LA with all the girls dressed up in miniskirts and sky-high shoes. That was pretty exotic. Everyone was texting, taking pictures, and I tried to put as much of that in the film [The Bling Ring] as possible. It was almost sci-fi, this idea that living does not count unless you are documenting it. All those things interest me and say so much about our culture, and what is emphasised as important.”
