"As the work becomes more extensive and I had a need to walk into and through and around it, then you get involved with what effect the work has physically on your body as you walk. So, time and movement became really crucial to how I deal with what I deal with, not only sight and boundary, but how one walks through a piece and what one feels and registers in terms of one's own body in relation to another body."

- Richard Serra
