"When you’re looking at the work, you’re looking at something visually declarative, but it requires a subtextual reading or a capacity or predisposition for reading code. That’s why I used the Victorian silhouettes. It was just a great conceptual armature to be able to filter social code through. I like that the work is visually very declarative and available to everybody. But watch out! There’s a code, and you’d better know it."
