"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"A lot of our projects are an opportunity to learn something about an area or an interest that we didn’t know much about, whether it’s abstract or philosophical or pragmatic. It’s always a chance to learn more about something in the world and to formulate some kind of response. This has a lot to do with vulnerability. How can you be vulnerable to the things that surround you to such a degree that you can have them affect you- change you, shape you, and form you?"
