Lot Essay

‘You have to make a commitment in terms of taking time out. Most of the public/private pieces are to be walked past and not thought about. You’re not really stopped in your tracks. They’re really designed for semi-distracted observation’ (D. Graham, quoted in ‘Dan Graham by Mike Metz’, in Bomb Magazine, no. 46, Winter 1994, www.bombmagazine.org/article/1722/dan-graham).
