  • I experience the freedom the artist talks about in the videos. I see Klimt. The works remind me of music. As an art form music is freely open to the interpretation of the performer so each time a listener hears the same piece by a different performer the experience is different. Same with these works in terms of their inherent fluidity, they conform to the space and time of the particular installation. As a woman says in one of the videos: e fantastico!

  • I love the connections between the artist and the installers of the art, both contributing to the ongoing meaning and experience. Art and life consisting of "non-fixed forms".
