“People say my work has an intellectual or literary bent but it doesn’t, really. It’s just following curiosities. That’s why I tend to be drawn to words I don’t know the meaning of — it sparks my imagination.
But it is odd when you’re narrowing in on an idea and you start seeing it everywhere, like on a book spine in a library. I’m not one for fate but these little things can seem beyond serendipitous, making you think, ‘This has meaning now’. That’s when you know you just have to trust what’s coming together and follow it through.” — Andrew Bird
