Catalogue Note

"The space within and around the single stacks becomes dynamic and arresting because the work projects abruptly at right angles to the wall, extended forward from a depth four times the height of its frontal rectilinear surface. Judd attached his boxlike prisms to the wall at 62 to 63 inches above the floor, so their projection occurs at eye level. A viewer of average height sees, just barely, the top plane of the box as well as its front and sides. It could be said that a single stack creates an enveloping space...in your face."
Richard Shiff, "Space is Made," in Exh. Cat., New York, Van de Weghe Fine Art, Donald Judd Single Stacks 1964-1969, 2004, p. 10
