Williams found this clip sampler at a flea market in Paris, in a situation that will sound poignantly familiar to anyone who collects: "I was palpitating over it," he says, "and the dealer, who doesn’t even speak English, is like, 'It’s just cardboard!'" But it's never just cardboard, or anything else, to Williams. "When you look at objects, there's soul. I get really philosophical about it."
