Lot Essay

"Once pieces are done, they kind of live by themselves. They live their own lives, so let them do it. ...I always had the attitude that I don't necessarily know what I've done. You know, other people say, 'What's that? I don't understand it.' Sometimes I say, 'Well, I don't either, at least not yet.'"
—John McCracken
