"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."
"The forms are all based on adaptations of specific forms that Noguchi either created as sculptures or modeled in some way for his unrealized and realized ideas for landscape design. And so each object that I made in the glass foundry was envisioned as what its final part in the whole installation was going to be. Some of the forms involved cutting, and most of them involved grinding and polishing to get them to...mold into the surface of the landscape or the ground of the installation, which is sort of a landscape model or an abstract landscape model."
