"Marionettes on a stage appear to move in various ways, but in fact it is not they who really move – they are manipulated by strings. When these strings are broken, the marionettes fall and are dashed to pieces. What holds the parts together is the mind. This mind must not be disclosed to the audience. If it is seen, it is as if a marionettes’ strings were visible. The mind must be like the strings, which hold together all the powers of the arts." -Michi Susan

"Order from chaos, chaos from order---two concepts that underlie my penchant for working in paper collage. I am always fascinated at the visual combinations possible by the simple manipulation of bits of paper." -Rebecca Piercey
