What was your best Halloween costume?
“I was just wearing a suit. Everyone thought I was just dressed as me but didn't believe I was me. ‘Oh yeah, you're dressed like the Strokes guy, I get it.’”
—Albert Hammond Jr.
What should happen with this structure after the exhibit is over?
“They should give the pod to New York and let homeless people live in it! You could live in a Chanel purse.”
What will your Halloween costume be this year?
“My dear, for me it is Halloween all year over.”
Jackie Astier said the homeless should live in this structure after the exhibit.
“That would be the epitome of New York City: high and low.”
Have you ever loved a purse enough to make art out of it?
“No, I’m not that creative. I’m reverential of them, but I haven’t created any installations in my home out of them.”
—Sarah Jessica Parker
Have you ever had a Halloween disaster?
“I've only had Halloween successes.”
What do you do to take care of yourself?
“I'm a bath girl. I'm a scrubber.”
Are you doing anything to cut back because of the economy?
“I don't think I could get any lower.”
