"Words are just a way we communicate. Images are a way we communicate. And I couldn't figure out why they had to be in different baskets."
"I wanted to inscribe in this modernist, rationalist building an image that was somehow chaotic, that marked a negative space, because I believe there is a bottomless gap that divides humanity from inhumanity, or whites from nonwhites. I wanted to address that gap, which I thought was mainly perceived in the history of modernity."
