This is the "real" reality invented by Carlos Cruz-Diez—an orchestrated moment of reflection, leading only to the moment that follows. With a conviction that only research leads to creation, each work of art therefore employs color and form to precise effect: to allow the instability of universal experience to generate an event as remarkable as it is individual."
