"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’ve been very involved in not having a signature material. I think there is a signature style. It’s like handwriting. And I have a feeling that anybody who’s seen much of my work would probably recognize it as mine. But I don’t use the same materials. I like having different kinds of input coming in. When I first came to New York, I had no money, obviously (no one had any money). And I had the year of aluminum foil. I did the year of little tiny wire structures. And then I would get a router or a tool and it was the year of the router, the year of the jigsaw."
