"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."
"I loved being a painter at the Rhode Island School of Design, but I wasn’t good enough. So I put that away for a long, long time. It wasn’t until I started working with these secret documents that I decided that they could be paintings. I was very lucky to find Ben Snead, who also graduated from RISD, to paint the grounds for me. He’s a master painter; I’m a theoretical one."
