"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."
"How the pieces begin is a hard thing to talk about. I like these pieces of plastic; I like the color of the plastic; I like that they’re inexpensive but gorgeous. And why are they so inexpensive and gorgeous compared to diamonds, which are so expensive and probably no more beautiful than these plastic things? I think these plastic things are stunningly beautiful. And then they’re so inexpensive."
