"From the beginning I was trying to make something as direct as possible with clay: the earth. The 200,000 body-surrogates completely occupy the space in which they are installed, taking the form of the building and excluding us, but allowing visual access. I gave these instructions to the makers: Take a hand-size ball of clay, form it between the hands, into a body surrogate as quiclky as possible. Place it at arm's length in front of you and give it eyes." -- Anthony Gormley
