"Here interaction and dialogue with the spectator take place on the most concrete level. The quality and incidence of light, slight shifts in his position, cause ceaseless permutations of direction and value, and are inseparable from the play of the internal dialectic within the work. It is the seamless union between inside and out, between experience and experiencer, most acutely apparent in the process of perception itself, which is the content of Albers' art. These works are perhaps that art's supreme achievement, joining the extreme poles of sensual and intellectual knowledge in a fusion of luminous beauty."
-Sheldon Nodelman, from the introduction
