Directed by Lisanne Skyler, 2016 

Pioneering Light and Space artist Robert Irwin has explored the nature of perception for over six decades. Along the way, he broke a few rules. 

“As artists, the one true inquiry of art as a pure subject is an inquiry of our potential to know the world around us and our actively being in it, with a particular emphasis on the aesthetic. This world is not just somehow given to us whole. We perceive, we shape the world, and as artists we discover and give value to our human potential to "see" the infinite richness (beauty?) in everything, creating an extended aesthetic reality.” - Robert Irwin
