    Vasarely felt that art that required interpretation based on experience would not be mass art, he chose to use forms that would provide only visual sensations.  He has advocated the return of art to its role as an integral part of life and has conceived of his images as infinitely multipliable in prints, sculptures, games and architectural environments.  Since his imagery is modular and serial, it has the capacity for almost limitless variation.  (Rita Castleman Modern Art in Prints, Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1973, p. 60)
