"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 story [of "CREMASTER 3"] has two principals, the Architect and the Mason's Apprentice...The Architect, who's played by Richard Serra, is shown sort of as himself in the game, throwing Vaseline on the top of "Level Five." And he's throwing hot Vaseline in exactly the same way that he threw hot lead in the late '60s."
