Morris_mirrored_cubesSome quotes by Robert Morris currently tickling my brain (sited from Site-specific art: Performance place and documentation by Nick Kaye):

Real space cannot be experiences except in real time.

Our encounter with objects in space forces us to reflect on our selves which can never become “other” which can never become objects for our external examination. In the domain of real space the subject-object dilemma can never be resolved.

It was a confrontation with the body. It was the notion that the object recedes in its self-importance. It participates in a complex experience that includes the object your body the space and the time of your experience. It’s locked together in these things.
