“I do not make boxes. I construct containers for the universe”

“for every box that closes, another six shall open.”

“Is a box without corners truly a box”

“The box does not define it’s contents, rather it is defined by them”

“The box does not enclose space, It envelops space, hugs it to it’s bosom”

“Is it the box which holds its contents, or the contents the box”

“Look into a box deeply and you will see the form of wisdom, the box makes the form, it builds it”

“Build a big enough box and it will enclose the world”

“I do not make boxes, I sculpt air in the form of a box”

“Some artists work with clay, some with paint, my medium is space, my tools are life, my form is box”

“Every box made is another universe built”
