— Suzanne Lacy, « Cinderella in a Dragster », Criss Cross Double Cross, v.1, Fall 1976, pp.15-16. Excerpt:

« The point I’m driving at is that everything continues to move including these words and even the memory of these changes and sometimes it is not as clear what something or someone is as where they are going or at least how they are getting there. In a dragster or a pumpkin? You see it doesn’t really matter whether Cinderella was a princess or a scullery maid except for the sake of the image you’re creating at the time, for soon that same image or the structure around which you have built your work collapses for you or you destroy it in order to build another up and the process repeats itself. In fact the sign of viability for an artist and that might include anybody is the ability to go through the collapse of one fairy tale and the creation of the next, that is, to not get stuck in the myth. It’s a time honored quotation in art which goes, ‘Don’t ever forget: what is a carriage today might be a pumpkin tomorrow’. »
