David's maya-sign is MEN (Blue Eagle),

a visionary, who changed the world through his music and art, and inspired people to be unique


I suppose for me as an artist it wasn't always just about expressing my work; I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.

- I wanted to be the instigator of new ideas - 


I don't have stylistic loyalty. That's why people perceive me changing all the time. But there is a real continuity in my subject matter. As an artist of artifice, I do believe I have more integrity than any one of my contemporaries.

- I behaved like a true magician in art and music -  



I wanted to prove the sustaining power of music

- My vision changed the world - 



I'm just an individual who doesn't feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I'm working for me.

- I remained true to myself -



I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.

- Synchronicity led me through life -



I wish myself to be a prop, if anything, for my songs. I want to be the vehicle for my songs. I would like to colour the material with as much visual expression as is necessary for that song.


- I was a mirror to the world -


The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within 10 years, and nothing is going to be able to stop it. I see absolutely no point in pretending that it's not going to happen. I'm fully confident that copyright, for instance, will no longer exist in 10 years.

- My transformations have inspired many -


It amazes me sometimes that even intelligent people will analyze a situation or make a judgement after only recognizing the standard or traditional structure of a piece.

- I was open minded and non-judgmental - 



I'm an instant star. Just add water and stir.

- My creativity was unlimited - 



Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity. So it's like, just take advantage of these last few years because none of this is ever going to happen again. You'd better be prepared for doing a lot of touring because that's really the only unique situation that's going to be left.

- I communicated with the world through music and art -


I'm always amazed that people take what I say seriously. I don't even take what I am seriously.

 - I was a unique person in everything I did and created - 



On the other hand, what I like my music to do to me is awaken the ghosts inside of me. Not the demons, you understand, but the ghosts

- My life was marked by immensive creative growth - 



I re-invented my image so many times that I'm in denial that I was originally an overweight Korean woman.

- My passion for life was expressed by a constant renewal of myself -
