"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."
"Wall Chart of World History from Earliest Times to the Present," detail (1997)
"There was ‘The Wall Chart of World History...’ and I think the reference to history came after making this drawing and seeing it as kind of a time line because it has this feeling of different events being portrayed, one taking over another. It was a long red drawing and it looked like it was a spirograph drawing. It had a real biomorphic quality, almost like it was composed of intestines or something."
