"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."
"Absolutely nothing is escapable in that realm of light, and everything is there to be analyzed and examined. These are ideas that have been very, very interesting to me, and I think about them often. I think about the way that Brecht uses light. I think about the way DeCarava uses light. I think about the way that Beckett thinks about light."
