In this clip a brief interview with Craig Kauffman:

Kauffman has works in many prestigious collections including the Whitney Museum and the Museum of Modern Art both located in New York City. His work can also be found in the Tate Modern located in London.

Although similar shapes of plastic can be found everywhere in modern times, we must not forget where the original ideas came from! Imagine how modernist and unique these works of art were in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Another artist working in a similar style was Larry Bell.
