"That we do not discover reality but rather invent it is quite shocking for many people. And the shocking part about it — according to the concept of radical constructivism — is that the only thing we can ever know about the real reality (if it even exists) is what it is not. It is only with the collapse of our constructions of reality that we first discover that the world is not the way we imagine."
— Paul Watzlawick, “On the Nonsense of Sense and the Sense of Nonsense,” 1995
"I don’t think art can stand up to nature. Put the best object you know next to the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, redwoods. The big things always win."
— Walter De Maria, ‘On the Importance of Natural Disasters,’ 1960
