ARTIST, JAMIE DEARING: This is a very interesting piece.

CURATOR, ANN TEMKIN: This is the artist Jamie Dearing, who worked for many years with Judd in his studio.

JAMIE DEARING: If you look at it on the end, it's a square, and he's taken the front corner away and he's replaced it with a tube, where you can see the entire interior space of the tube. He's liberated the square, he's changed the box, but he's replaced it with a horizontal interior space parallel to the wall.

And below it in each alternate side, are entryways into the interior of the piece, into the invisible inside space. So he has perpendicular, invisible space emerging away from the wall, and he has visible horizontal space running along the wall. It's both viewable and hidden at the same time.
