"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."
"New Development on what was a Citrus Growing Estate, Highland, California" (1985)
"I found what interested me most about the Los Angeles basin was the natural part of it. And when you think about Los Angeles, that isn’t the thing that normally pops to your mind. But it’s an amazingly verdant if somewhat ominous landscape. There’s nothing like the mixture of the smell of eucalyptus and orange groves to pull you in two directions really."
