"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"We were interested in the matter-of-factness of what chalk is- a tool- something you find in the classroom. But it’s also a geological substance, found naturally in the earth. Because of its nature, it is ephemeral and fragile. It’s a beautiful white form, minimal looking and very clean- but paradoxically it’s also something that can have a connotation of something dirty because it is used to mark a surface. This was interesting, how this material could be symbolic, iconic, and also nothing else but itself. It was like trying to think about or reconcile a minimalistic form made of this material and putting it in a public setting to see what might unfold."
