“What I wanted to do was work as if I was not human. As if the human species didn’t exist anymore. I mean, as far as we know, for 6,000 light years around us, the only beings that are producing symbols, that are thinking—in the planets, in the universe—are humans. So when humans disappear from the face of the earth, then there will be no more art. What could you do in those last moments? What would the last art look like?”
