The individualization of perception: I don't do feature films; rather, I am a filmmaker who works with images and sounds in a manner that enables viewers, the audience, to train their perception. That's what I explained to the composer yesterday: My aim is not for you to applaud my work or praise my film, I'm not interested in applause for my films at all. They provide me with an opportunity to train, in a playful fashion, your perception through your perception over the course of 60 or 200 minutes or however many minutes the film runs. Education of perception, that's what I do. The government should be paying me for that. I invite people to hone their perception.
