"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."
"It's something for a child to be introduced to the Meeting...this time when you are no longer in first day of school, but you actually come and join the Meeting. And my grandmother was trying to tell me what you did. So her explanation to me was you went inside to greet the light. And this idea, to go inside to find that light within, literally, as well as figuratively, was something that really propelled me at the time. I really thought that that's what I should do. Of course, I'm still trying to figure out exactly what she meant. But I like that quality."
