The most unpopular Cory Arcangel quotes you will be delighted to read
I think about my art works as paintings, because they refer to the history of painting. I also have to think about them as sculptures, because every part of the process is part of the project. They're sculptures because they play on the idea of what should be hanging in a gallery. In that sense they're also kind of ready-mades.
I can charm my way out of a situation when I screw up.
Art is fast, but with art you're tied down.
That's too negative. What I mean is, you have a business and a place that you go every day. I guess some artists do move around.
I would love to say there was some contemporary artist who's work really got me thinking, but lately I have just been trying to sort out 20 years of garbage TV culture that is filling my brain.
I'm not sure what I was good at as a kid. I was good at playing with Legos.

Keep doing what you like to do. That's all it is.
I never was much of a game player, but I loved to be on the computer.
I started playing heavy-metal guitar because that's what I liked.
And then I got into classical guitar because it was so technically complicated.
Simplicity is an asset, not a weakness... The smaller the idea the happier I am.
Engineering is a creative practice.
I'm afraind of losing my sense of trying to always be better. I love competition against myself.
