"Of all those I know he has the shortest transition from thought to action. Whatever he comes up with he has to let it out immediately. I am tempted to believe that all that he does is the expression of an ever productive –never repetitive process, whether he eats or drinks - and he would with no doubt even mention more hands-on activities- be it cooking mutton chops for a hansjoerg mayer edition or for eating: he wouldn’t be capable of doing something ordinary."

Karl Gerstner
