Collaborations are like when you’re in high school and there are all these different types, and maybe you’re the only two or three performance artists, or maybe you’re goth, or into anime, and when you get together, you get excited about sharing this world.

When I met Raúl it was like: This is why I moved to New York—to have this artistic dialogue.
