"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"Just as in our other works, you see juxtapositions- an image before, an image after- in complete opposition to each other. Or you recognize a material that has a function, but then you see that it’s made in a way that suggests a completely different function."
- Allora & Calzadilla
