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

"That was kind of the Meeting House I always wanted to see. I guess I like the literal quality, or feeling, or sensation, in that I want to feel light physically. We drink it as vitamin D; it's actually a food. We are heliotropic, and it has a big effect on the skin. We also have a big psychological relation to light. All or most spiritual experiences, near death experiences, are described with a vocabulary of light. This quality to feel light exists, almost like we see it in a dream."
