“One might not think of light as a matter of fact, but I do. And it is, as I said, as plain and open and direct an art as you will ever find.”

— Dan Flavin, American minimalist artist famous for creating sculptural objects and installations from commercially available fluorescent light fixtures. Born today, 1933, in New York City (d. November 29, 1996.)

This is one lunch I would have loved to have attended, preferably seated between Claes Oldenburg and Robert Rauschenberg. With Andy Warhol, watching, quietly bemused.

One thought on “

  1. The mantis shrimp can perceive polarized light and multispectral images. Yet scientist doubt his brain has concepts of it.
    Image the colors of that shrimp’s eyes.

    Also I am not sure if I would let andy Warhol touch me
