"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 worst part of what I do is the fabrication, the small details. I want to get working. I don’t really care about the small details, even though as time goes on I realize they matter. Usually I don’t care about edges and stuff. But at some point it becomes part of the conversation. Sometimes I use little Post-its, or those little dot-thingies, to try to see where I want a color, if I want to bring the color in. But sometimes I’m timid. I don’t like something, so I’ll cover it up. I bet it says a lot about me, hiding stuff- stuff peeking through."
