Hans Haacke

   Condensation Cube, 1963-65.

...make something which experiences, reacts to its environment, changes, is nonstable...
...make something indeterminate, that always looks different, the shape of which cannot be predicted precisely...
...make something that cannot “perform” without the assistance of its environment...
...make something sensitive to light and temperature changes, that is subject to air currents and depends, in its functioning, on the forces of gravity...
...make something the spectator handles, an object to be played with and thus animated...
...make something that lives in time and makes the “spectator” experience time...
...articulate something natural...

Hans Haacke, Cologne, January 1965.
