    'Technically we can make what we need, in a universe where the laws of physics determine how things work, and not a time when those laws are more or less understood. In spite of that, wonder is still possible. I believe in aesthetic awe. A kind of wonder. I think what it does to the object is very interesting. And what it does to ones perspective as the viewer is fascinating' (Kapoor, quoted in D. de Salvo, 'Anish Kapoor in Conversation, pp. 402-11, D. Anfam et al., Anish Kapoor, London, 2009, p. 406).
