Andrea Zittel: Artist vs. Designer

"There's like this other question that I ask myself that comes up a lot too, and it's like that question of why to be an artist and not a designer. I remember thinking that if an art historian, like, a hundred years from now had to talk about my generation, that it would be almost impossible to talk about it in, sort of, a significant cultural sense without touching on what was going on in design at the same time. There's this, kind of, privileged position of being an artist where you can do things on a more experimental nature simply to see what happens."
