"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."
"I love Hiroshi Sugimoto’s work, and I’ve always paid close attention to his horizons- always at the same place. But that was not my interest. I saw a helicopter coming down, and the idea of photographing it just before it hit the horizon became of utmost importance tome. This reinforces the idea of the helicopter flying, just floating on air. That’s what they do, of course, but this visually reinforces that idea or describes it in a way that I hadn’t seen before."
