“An oval canvas 168 x 110 cm (661/4 x 431/4 inches) is placed 50 cm (193/4 inches) in front of the wall. the canvas is non-painted. it is connected to the wall by a fine metal wire attached to its upper half. it is also attached to the floor.a second oval canvas, 33 x 22 cm (13 x 83/4 inches), is hung by its left side to the wall 60 cm (231/2 inches) from the floor, and is painted the same color as the wall.
The large canvas is shown face-out as long as the artist is alive, and will be turned to face the wall when he dies.”

“‘Trees are like people – you never know when they’re gonna slap you in the face.’ That is quite straightforward; every kind of relationship requires interest, dosage of character, and a lot of labor. . . . I have been talking to trees for a while now and it is not always that we understand each other. Relationships in life, with places, people and mirrors, are just like that.”
