Jacqueline: Any first thoughts about softness?
Carl: ...This culture is always thinking hard, without that softness. So that's what I've been playing with a lot the last few years, this hard/soft kind of thing, comic/dark. A lot of different dualities, basically, is something that I’m always looking for, but particularly hard/soft with this last body of work, doing these big, monolithic structures, but then turning them kind of soft and slumping down and all that, some made out of steel, but they're all kind of squishy and floppy.
