"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself.

"Pegleg is there for a kind of insistence. It’s hard to put into language because it’s a form. Pegleg implies travel and worldliness. That ad appeals to me because of the way Pegleg Bates, the actual actor and comedian, used his whole body. It’s this man with this wooden leg offering himself as your host. The ad itself exists as a map to this hotel in upstate New York. I liked the idea of having a map within a map."
