Why the way things go?

Last night I went to a talk by artists Peter Fischli & David Weiss at the Tate Modern.
I asked them what they thought about “cog” which is quite similar to a film they did in 1987:
Der Lauf der Dinge – The Way Things Go

Cog

David Weiss, who looked like he didn’t really want to be in this talk at all, said they thought about suing, but it was all too complicated and too costly, so they just sent a copy of their film to the jury members at Cannes. DW said “Quite a childish response really, but i guess that’s the way things go…”
