"One very important element is the economy of means. I strongly believe in the power of a single idea. So the most difficult thing for me and, I think, for most artists is to clean up- to arrive at the essence. Most artworks today try to say thirty-seven things at the same time. I try exactly the contrary. When you reach that essential idea, it’s extraordinary."

- Alfredo Jaar
