"Sensory design rubs up against the living-thingness of the world. A room is not just a cube punctured with windows and doors. It is a sensing creature with deep pockets and velvet shadows. It curves like an eyeball and bends like an elbow." --Ellen Lupton and Andrea Lipps, "Why Sensory Design?"
Communication (but not community) and distribution (but not accessibility) were inherent in conceptual art. Although the forms pointed toward democratic outreach, the content did not. However rebellious the escape attempts, most of the work remained art referential, and neither economic nor aesthetic ties to the art world were fully severed (though at times we liked to think they were hanging by a thread). —Lucy Lippard
