"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."
"Because of the fact that it’s not symmetrical I feel like The Swarm has become more like a landscape and less like a body. That shape floating in space is very soft, that almost looks like a cloud somehow; but, there at the same time, aggressive. Every element in that swarm has the potential to sting you. I found that combination of the softness of that abstract cloud shape and that aggressive potential to be really nice, that balance."
—David Altmejd in Boundaries (2012)
