"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."
"At night, you will have a blinking light (I want it to look like a winking eye) and in the exterior, you’ll have an eyebrow over the window. Because, you know, the Viennese architect Alfred Loos said that he wanted to get rid of eyebrows from windows. Aesthetically, I always look for the weak link in the chain and, rather than glorify Mies van der Rohe—he’s had enough glorification—I just thought I would poke a little fun at him and do a reverse Mies van der Rohe."
