"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."
"As the first car takes off, tumbling through the air in a very dreamlike fashion, it lands back on its four wheels safely, undamaged, unharmed. It repeats. It’s just repetition. It goes right back to the very first car again. It suggests that it’s just one car. It starts out with more realistic colors of light, bright flash, and flame colors. Then it goes into more fireworks-like lights, various colors, and then the more dreamlike blues, pinks, purples."
