Small work allows the experience of getting up close and personal with the artwork. The size of the artwork forces one to go in and really look. "Smaller beckons: get close, touch, relate - they inspire a reduction of the psychic distance between one thing and another; between people and things"
- from the book and philosophy: "Wabi Sabi"
