  • “My dream is always the same: that my work communicates enough by itself, without too much context, that people who don’t engage with art get something out of it. That’s a really gratifying experience, to have someone just see something and think, Wow, that’s cool, and they’re not from within the art world.”
    —Urs Fischer
