"The world is full of objects, more or less interesting; I do not wish to add any more. I prefer, simply, to state the existence of things in terms of time and/or place." - Douglas Huebler

"I decided a long time ago that the less I do, the more of an artist I am." - David Hammons

"There is no neat definition of a situation, yet we would find it impossible to cope with experience if we did not mentally cut it up into these manageable units. Moreover, while the boundary lines between situations may be indistinct, every situation has a certain 'wholeness' about it, a certain integration. Every situation has certain identifiable components. These include 'things'– a physical setting or natural or man-made objects. Every situation occurs in a 'place'– a location or arena within which the action occurs. (It is not accidental that the Latin root 'situ' means place.) Every social situation also has, by definition, a cast of characters – people. Situations also involve a location in the organizational network of society and a context of ideas or information. Any situation can be analyzed in terms of these five components. But situations also involve a separate dimension which, because it cuts across all the others, is frequently overlooked. This is duration – the span of time over which the situation occurs."


- Alvin Toffler, Future Shock, 1970
"It's better than nothing." - The Art Guys
