"I like pushing against arbitrary accepted norms such as, "How come we can't have inflatables in the streets." If everyone wore large inflatables in the street it would be anarchy and chaos but maybe not. Inflatables allow me to reach and impact a much larger audience than stationary sculpture, simply because I invade the public space and can have a disarming effect on participants to act as an ice breaker for more sincere and mutual engagement."
