"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."
"I hiked around and felt a little foolish taking pictures of tract houses and highways. But I came into the darkroom and printed them and I was really surprised. I thought I was taking pictures of things that I hated, that were inexcusable. But there was something about these pictures that was beautiful. It made no sense to me at all. They were unexpectedly, disconcertingly, glorious. And so right then I knew I was confronted with something I didn’t have a clue about, but it was interesting."
