    “[The Statue of Liberty] is such a strong icon, tracing back to so many histories, and then just discovering the fragility of it... I thought it would be interesting to make something that people felt so familiar with, in all the different ways that people project on the sculpture, and try to destabilize your own thinking of it.” (D. VO, quoted in H. M. Sheets, ‘Lady Liberty, Inspiring Even in Pieces,’ the New York Times, 20 September 2012)
