"Is it a cold and cerebral art? No—a purified art, rather, marked with a deep spirituality, ordered and built as is the crystal or the atom. A great richness of invention appears in Vasarely’ s structures, in which the special arrangement of the elements produces that characteristic, irritating, and finally appealing vibration. For here everything contributes to the kinetic form (la plastique cinétique), a term of which he is in fact the inventor. He does not consider forms and colors separately, but as a form-color whole, which has become a plastic Unity…” – Marcel Joray, ed., Vasarely, Switzerland, 1965, p. 6.
