"I don’t see myself from the outside like that, but I suppose I took the procedures of steelmaking and brought them into the subtext of art in the same way that Warhol manipulated the interface between art and commercial design. I admire a lot of people who have had long stands, and it seems like particular cultures don’t want to give artists their second, third or fourth acts. Your life’s a nanosecond; if you have a contribution to make, then make it. Don’t bitch about it, just do it." - Richard Serra via Time Out London
