Lot Essay

"There is material to be seen around you every day. But one day something - some one thing - pops out at you, and you pick it up, and you take it over, and you put it somewhere else, and it fits, it's just the right thing at the right moment I guess that's part of my definition of art."
– John Chamberlain
