“The work hovers in an everyday world where illusion and reality are confused. This form of discursive practice is to neither fuse nor to refuse these two elements. But rather, it is to juggle them in their paradoxical relationship of difference and identity--i.e. to ever re-fuse them. To unite with the other while simultaneously recognizing one as the Other.”
