These are the first objects created in our new studio in New York. A couple days ago I turned 69 and I am very much aware how fortunate I am to be in a new city at this time in my life. It feels like I’m in the right place for me at the right time, not a bad way to feel at this age. Or any, for that matter.

Back in 1966 I got my first apartment, it was in San Francisco and in it I had nothing but a bed, a chair and a table. I made cardboard sculptures back then, very simple ones, on which I mounted type and images. Now that we’ve just moved into a temporary apartment in New York, I decided to go back to those cardboard boxes, but drop the images and construct them out of wood. I'm working on a dozen of them; this is the first.
