“I wanted to create a different environment for myself. That is what took me from the two-dimensional to the three-dimensional. As a fourth dimension I imagined a world in which one is not merely a representation, but in which one can live. That would be the fourth dimension for me. A three-dimensional space in which I then am or another is and where I encounter another.”
