Clark Coolidge

I also want to say that there are no rules. At least not at first there aren’t. If you start with rules, you’ve really got a tough road. What I think is that you start with materials. You start with matter, not with rules. The rules appear, the limitations appear, and those are your limitations and the limitations of the material. Stone has a certain cleavage. You can’t make it look a certain way if the stone is not constructed to allow you to do that.
