Connie Kreemer: How much coordination is there for you between what you do outside the studio and what you do inside?
Douglas Dunn: Outside, there are two ways I pull veils away; if there are veils—hey, there might not be veils. In the studio the principle means of refreshment is to alter kinesthetic habit. New muscle patterns foster new mental and emotional patterns, then these elements play back and forth with one another begetting, at times, dizzying unfamiliarity.
