"We only move into the 21st century on the foundation of things that have been established long, long ago."
"The micromanaging of aesthetics and beauty both in the work and in the way my partner and I conduct our life comes actually from acknowledging something a little sad. I think that we both conflate the managed state of beauty and aesthetics as a zone that allows safety. For us, then, the manic articulation of our surroundings is actually a form of creating a safe zone."
