I once read a quote about getting to the top of your field by moving to the edge and declaring it the new center. It wasn't exactly in those words but if I remember correctly is came from someone in an arts or creative field possibly Andy Warhol.
It was concise, nonchalant and pithy in the manner that Andy often answered any question he was asked. I encountered it about 10-15 years ago if that helps. Can anyone identify the source or confirm it was Andy Warhol?
