Naum Gabo

We do not measure our works with the yardstick of beauty, we do not weigh them with pounds of tenderness and sentiments…We construct our work as the universe constructs its own, as the engineer constructs his bridges, as the mathematician his formula of the orbits.

Naum Gabo and Antoine Pevsner, “The Realistic Manifesto”

  3. Yes, and today the construction work weighed down on me more than on other days… There are good days and bad days, I suppose, just like in any other job. :)
