    “Their first solo exhibition — "British Rubbish," in London in 1996 — parodied the hype and the stereotyping rampant in the art world, and the two have continued to investigate, criticize, and capitalize on modern PR techniques and post-Warholian aspects of the lust for celebrity. Their interest in advertising and excess extends to the body of work they’re best known for — over-the-top sculptures made from flashing commercial lights and using the vocabulary of Las Vegas casinos to embody contradictory elements of Western culture, like our simultaneous cravings for love and fame/immortality/riches.” (Randi Hopkins, “Trash and Vaudeville”, The Boston Phoenix, April 9-15, 2004)
