"I think my preoccupations is the contrast between the surface absorbing its entire environment by light in reflections, like with mirrors (I've always been obsessed by that), because I don't want the piece to stop on the wall. And it has to somehow document what's going on in the room and be flexible enough to respond."

R. Rauschenburg
