"Today, with her nighttime projections, we experience the touch of light against the surface of public spaces. Whether this light is white (which is pure), or blue (which is melancholy), or amber (which is neutral), her installations present words in motion, so our eyes move, too, as if we are at the cinema or theatre, and we are plunged into darkness where images float before us. She has renegotiated the line between writing and image." Henri Cole

"I used language because I wanted to offer content that people—not necessarily art people—could understand." Jenny Holzer
