"Since I began in this kind of work in the 1940s, I've been interested in the essence of movement, not just in making objects that move, but in trying to use movement as an expressive means, as a painter might use color...I began to realize that if one was to use the movement as a kind of essential expression, one probably had to try it with extremely simple forms. And this led me gradually to pare the forms down until I arrived simply at lines. These pieces with long blades are really just an exploitation of the simplest means I could find at the time for showing a kind of ordered and related set of movements."
