"....we are an art form. I do not mean that we produce art consciously now, but I mean we arean art form, whether we think of it or not, and whether we do anything about it or not. We are an environment, each one of us. We are an environment for the other people with whom we live, the people with whom we work, the people with whom we communicate. And in this sense we do not choose an art form and create something in that form; we are an art form.....people who come across us or walk into our presence, become involved.....we should have thoughtfulnes concerning our responsbility in this area. We should be artists in doing something about the environment we are creating..."
