I think the fact that I created something and had an enormous influence is indisputable.
I have my own definition of minimalism, which is that which is created with a minimum of means.
Give people knowledge and they really eat it up and they appreciate it a lot and the more that knowledge is made available to people, the more they will utilize it and let it be a part of them.
One of the aspects of form that I have been very interested in is stasis – the concept of form which is not so directional in time, not so much climactic form, but rather form which allows time, to stand still.
