Mostly concerned with space, installation, light, geometrics, theory and new media works of the last century (or so)
I Am Not Waiting, Carl Andre. 1972 (ink on paper)

"I was consciously writing poetry before I was consciously making  sculpture. A typewriter has even spacing on the lines . [and] is  essentially a grid. Rather than trying to achieve a certain look, I was  using the same underlying abstractions, the same underlying forms, in  both [poetry and sculpture]—working out of the grid system of the  typewriter to the actual grid system of paper in poetry and also using  the same kind of system to plan sculptures to try and find elements that  would work within a system".—Carl Andre, 1972
