"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."
"There's a continual theme in my life and in my work. It's about taking something that seems like it's one way and flipping it over so it becomes the other. So I like to take things that are maybe limitations in my life and try to somehow recontextualize them, glamorize them, make them more interesting, and vice versa. So I took my simple living situation and used this certain aesthetic code of modern design, and made it, in my mind, very glamorous."
