"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."
"When I work with something large, I like getting elements that allow a human relationship to the parts, rather than simply being faced with an enormous expanse of material that doesn’t really have increments that you can grasp with your own body size."
