"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."
"There’s some kind of funny logic that I’ve always had in my titles that can’t be the thing, but in time if you sort of took a way around it you could find what that could have referred to or why that was there. So there is a logic but it’s maybe not as direct . . . I am terrified of words and language, they just get too specific. And also if I said what I really thought, things would be so literal and I hate literal. Also, things embarrass me. So if it gets too one thing, I will try to overlay it with another so it doesn’t get too literal, too poetic, too tough, too anything. Too red? Cancel it with a little bit of green or get a vibration. There is this matrix that usually is going on."
