"One thing about these looping pieces is that at any point somebody can enter, and they’re really set- depending on where they enter, how long they stay. It gives you a different form of interpretation. Only from our perspective, it’s only guided a certain amount...it’s basically up to the viewer. Of course, we can structure these loops, and we can think about any second- what happens if you come in here- and make that structure. But at the end, it’s very limited where we can, and we leave that open."
