“In 1966 I made three small self-propelled dome shaped sculptures. These later served as models for the group of 6ft high sculptures sent to Expo 70 as part of the E.A.T (Experiments in Art and Technology) project for American Pavilion. In the meantime, I have taken 93 of these units and changed each one into the individual pieces that make up in my exhibition in New York. The stencils on the wall are images from my short film 70 which I made during the last year while I was working on my sculptures. By showing my film with these sculptures I would like to suggest a relationship between them.”
