‘In this group of works there are no mistakes nor right, nor wrong. They are acronical of what you personally see and imagine. No tracks, no traces. Your story or dream and imagined or real these are your personal treasures to share or keep secret. Choose to expand your reality or live it in the future. […] Think of them as seeds provocative to arouse, without edit. The stories can change as time does’ (R. Rauschenberg, quoted in Robert Rauschenberg Short Stories, exh. cat., Galerie Jamileh Weber, Zurich, 2001, unpaged).
