"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."
"You don't want the kind of 'wow' effect. Basically, what you really want to do is try to engage the viewer's body relation to his thinking and walking and looking, without being overly heavy-handed about it...When something's overly claustrophobic, or when something's overly threatening, when something allows you to walk into a passage and then feel a release- those things you learn only through the doing and only through the buildings of forms."
- Richard Serra
