Otto Piene: The 50's & 60's

»The Light Paints
I wish for a heart with seven cham-bers, and a heartbeat as strong as the tides,
and twenty-two lungs to breathe any storm with ease.
I wish for a heaven in whose brilliance the slow and the fast are the same,
and humans are like doves, and doves eagles.
I wish for a day that is clear and radiant and lasting, and a night and silence.
And the light is there and penetrates everywhere,
and the painter is not me; it is the light.«
Otto Piene, 1961
