Robert Irwin

For Irwin, the question isn’t merely academic. By breaking down the barriers between the artwork and the surrounding environment, he leads the viewer to consider all the variables that factor into the act of perception. When we look at this disc, we aren’t seeing only it; we are perceiving ourselves perceiving.
