"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."
"If you don’t know what you’re doing out here in the Southwest- in this kind of isolation- if you don’t understand that you’re supposed to have work and a purpose to every day, you’re going to float off into the stratosphere, or move very quickly back to an urban center. You have to commit to your work. And you have to find things that interest you, and interesting ways of rendering them- and fight yourself at every turn so that you’re not repetitive or taking an easy solution."
