"When an object has a logic on its own, it starts to talk of many other things. It’s not that it represents anything, but it represents...its own reason to exist, in a way, as a material- as clay, terra cotta, in relation with bricks, in relation with construction, with pottery, with many things, and the body. Then it’s representing the movement that makes the shape. And then it can talk and express other things, suggest food, look like a fish, or something else."

- Gabriel Orozco
